One of the oldest Roman bridges in Turkey, also known as the Roma Köprüsü bridge or the Septimius Severus Köprüsü bridge, is located in the old part of the Aski castle in Adiyaman city, southeast Anatolia.

The bridge from the city center is about 55 km away. The bridge is located on two large rocks in the narrowest part of the Kahta River. It consists of 92 pieces of stone, and contains at the entrance and output columns carved by the people of the city in the name of the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus and his wife Julia Domna, which was called mother of soldiers.

The bridge was built on behalf of the Emperor's wife and children between 193 - 211 AD, and ordered by the Roman Emperor Saftimius Savaros.
