At the north part of the citadel lies the second gate of the fort. It is not grandiose like the main Gate of the Lions, neither does it bare any insignia. Evidently, it is an unofficial entry point that secured a second entrance but also exit in the case of danger. Two more auxiliary exits were opened in the wall. The north gate is situated 250 m to the east of the Gate of the Lions, and is its miniature form. It is placed in a recess of the Cyclopean masonry. From the east it is protected by a bastion, placed at the appropriate position, in order for the right, uncovered position of the possible invader to be vulnerable. A narrow courtyard in front of the entrance is formed here also.
This gate, much narrower than the Gate of the Lions, is constructed by conglomerate stones and lacks a relieving triangle. Above the lintel lay two parallel slates. Two passages pass from this point: a narrow one that ends at the east corner of the acropolis and the underground reservoir, and another wider one, that runs towards the north staircase and ends at the northwest official entrance of the palace. It's evident that the designers of the fortification wanted to secure the acropolis and foresaw with accuracy the points that should be monitored by the Guard.
