The Gates of Gaza (Samson)

6 Sh'vat 5771

How big (size, weight etc) were the gates of Gaza that Samson took off?


I have not found a source that details the dimensions of the gates. However, Malbim (Judges 16:3) writes that the verse stresses Samson’s great might in carrying off the gates, by implying that Samson could stride at his normal pace even when he carried the gates on his shoulders.
