Excerpt from Mycenaean Troy: Based on Dorpfield's Excavations in the Sixth of the Nine Buried Cities at Hissarlik
4. Of the many gates of Troy (b, Homer gives the names of two, the Scaean and the Darda nian. Of the three gates unearthed in our city, VI T must have formed the principal entrance on that por tion of the hill where the city was most accessible; while on the northern side, where the wall is entirely destroyed, the gate towering high above the plain could have been reached only by a ramp, such as is seen to-day in the ruins of the retaining wall beside the Northeast Tower. It is presumable that the Dar danian Gate lay in the direction of the Ida range, to ward the southeast, where Dardania was situated, and where the excavations have brought to light the great South Gate, VI T. From this gate, the farthest removed from the battlefield, the Trojans (e, 789) did not dare to issue while Achilles went forth to battle, nor did the Trojan women (x, 155) venture longer to wash their garments at the springs lying near.
