Arco di Constantino


One of Rome's most important victory arches, Arco di Constantino can be found on the western side of the Colosseo. It was constructed in 312AD in honour of Emperor Constantine following his victory over Maxentius at the battle of the Milvian Bridge (north-west of the Villa Borghese, in zona Olimpica). The arch was made in marble taken from other constructions.
