Daer de twee Zeegooden op de gevel liggen
Herengracht 510, Amsterdam
The house at Herengracht 510 with its curious name ‘House with the Two Gods of the Sea on the Gable’ was built in 1688 and is located close to the official residence (number 502) of the current Mayor of Amsterdam
The house is 29 metres deep and is made up of front and back sections. Its name refers to the two sandstone scrolls on the neck gable: on the left is Neptune, the god of the sea and on the right is Triton. Both are sitting on a dolphin. The house still has three intact period rooms. The most remarkable of the three is the front room where two of the three overdoors are dated (1760) and signed by the painter A.H. van Beesten.
