Pantheon Rome, Oldest door still in use

Rome: 31 October 2021: The oldest door still in use in Rome. Cast in bronze for emperor Hadrian's rebuilding, they date from about 115 AD.
Each door is solid bronze seven and a half feet wide & twenty-five feet high, yet so well balanced they can be pushed or pulled open easily by one person. It's also one of the only two doors in the world with a 2000 year old lock that is still working.
