(ώραία πύλη ), the name of one of the gates of the Temple (Acts 3:2). It was the entrance to the Court of the Women, immediately opposite the Gate of Shushan, the eastern portal through the outer wall into Solomon's Porch (see Strong's Harmony and E position of the Gospels, App. II, p. 33, and Map.) It is evidently the same described by Josephus as immensely massive, and covered with plates of Corinthian bronze (Ant. 15, 11, 5; War, 5:5, 3; 6:5, 3). (See Jour. Sac. Lit. Oct. 1867.) (See TEMPLE).
