Portus - 1 Communication channel

This north-south running channel connects the harbour basins with the Fossa Traiana. It probably already formed part of the Claudian harbour, as did the Fossa Traiana. A plan of Labacco from 1567 shows two bridges over this channel, but whether these really existed has been doubted, even though Labacco provides several measurements.
