Triumphal Arch of Constantine

A photograph of the famous triumphal arch of Constantine. The arch was actually a pastiche of various earlier monuments because much of the skill and resources for a monument of this level was no longer present in Rome - much had been moved to the new capital of the Empire, Constantinople. The arch was dedicated to Constantine's victory over Maxentius by the Senate and people of Rome.
