PORTA PORTUENSIS a gate in the Aurelian wall, rebuilt by Honorius in 403 A.D. (CIL vi. 1188: ob instauratos ... muros portas atque turres; DMH). Through it ran the VIA PORTUENSIS (q.v.). It had semi-circular brick towers and two arches, and thus resembled the original form of the portae Appia, Flaminia, and Ostiensis as built by Aurelian (see the view in Nardini, Roma Antica (1666), p. 36); so that it is not easy to see in what Honorius' restorations consisted. The excellent representation in Maggi's large bird's-eye view of Rome (published in facsimile by Ehrle, Roma nel tempo di Urbano VIII, Rome, 1914) shows a vantage court at the back, as at the Porta Appia, etc. The church of S. Lorenzo de Porta, of which nothing is known, took its name from the gate (HCh 295). It was destroyed by Urban VIII, whose successor, Innocent X, completed the new gate, 453 metres nearer to the city (Jord. i. I. 37 ; T v. 7-12; LF 36; Roma iii. (1925), 317).
