Was there a Soreg in Bayit Rishon?


I understand there was a little fence in Bayit Sheni called "HaSoreg"/"The Grille" which was meant to warn away gentiles and tme'im from entering the Chayil part of Har Habayit (according to the mishna in Kelim 1:8 and commentaries such as the Bartenura who mentions Shaar Nikanor which was only in Bayit Sheni) (just on a side-note, a couple of the Soreg's signs were found by archaeologists, as can be seen here). Was there such a thing in Bayit Rishon? And if not, why?

Why should this post be closed?
