Arch of Trajan – To the winner of the Dacia expedition

0
The Arch of Trajan is a monument probably erected between the end of 114 and the end of 115 AD by the Roman senate and people to thank Emperor Trajan, who had had the city harbour enlarged at his own expense. From the same harbour, Trajan set out on his expedition to Dacia, which he won and acquired great fame. There are reliable accounts that his equestrian statue stood on the attic, and at his side those of his wife and sister. The statues (in gilded bronze) were unfortunately stolen by the Saracens.
