Arch of Constantine, Rome

The Arch of Constantine is a 4th century triumphal arch which was built to commemorate the victory of Constantine I, the first Christian emperor, over Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 AD.

The Arch of Constantine is a 4th century triumphal arch which was built to commemorate the victory of Constantine I, the first Christian emperor, over Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 AD. Built in 315 AD, the arch measuring 21 metre high and 26 metre wide remains in good condition to this day. The design of the Arch of Constantine was inspired by the Arch of Septimius Severus in the nearby Forum and has 3 archways. Many of the elements of the entire structure have been sourced from other monuments belonging to different eras, which is apparent in the different architectural styles projected. Even the four fluted Corinthian columns on each facade of the Arch are made of Numidian giallo antico marble from a 1st century Flavian building. The statues of captured Dacian soldiers at the top were procured from the Forum of Trajan. The 8 roundels above the side arches, depicting scenes of hunting and sacrifice, are from the time of Hadrian. On four of the roundels, the head of the protagonist has been altered to represent Constantine. His head has also been substituted on the 8 rectangular reliefs of Marcus Aurelius above the minor archways. The main inscription on the arch is dedicated to Constantine and his victory inspired by ‘the divine’, a reference to a Christian God he believed helped him win the Milvian Bridge battle. Situated between the Colosseum and Palatine Hill, it is within walking distance from both. The easiest way to reach is to take the Metro B to Colosseum.
