The name derives from the gens Pincia, who owned the eponymous hill . In ancient times it was also called Porta Turata and Porta Salaria vetus, as the oldest Via Salaria passed under it .
The gate was built under the emperor Honorius in the early 5th century, by adapting a previous smaller service entrance. The two side passages are a modern addition. The gate remained closed until the early 20th century.
