Via Sacra or The Sacred Street, ran from Porta Heraclea to the Episcopal Basilica and it was approximately 75 meters long. It was paved with sandstone slabs and there were colonnades with arcades on both sides. The columns were founded on a stylobate made of seats from the theatre. Across the Episcopal Basilica, the street forms a Semicircular court surrounded by columns and small rooms which are considered to be workshops. Ιn the middle of the court there is a pedestal for an equestrian sculpture, also made of seats from the theatre. Some of the scholars believe it was a sculpture of Theodosius I that stood in the court. The street is not excavated but it is obvious that there had been a reconstruction at the beginning of the 5th century.
