Located at the foot of Capitol Hill, the Arch of Septimius Se- True was built in 203 A.D. to celebrate the victories ot- held by the emperor against the Parthians. The arch, completely covered in marble, is a three-arched framed by Corinthian columns set on podiums and is surmounted mented with a high attic where you can still read the inscription dedication (in the fourth line the name and title of Geta, if- second son of Septimius Severus, were deleted and replaced lished by the formula "optimisé fortissimisque Principibus" - to good and strong principles - after his assassination, ordered by his brother Caracalla). The decoration of the main faces of the arc (the one facing to the Forum and that faces the Capitol) is very rich and elaborate. The podium of each column was adorned with fi- gures of the Roman soldiers escorting prisoners shares, while Central to the sides of the archivolt are located two winged Victories leading trophies and headed to the key central tral of which depicts Mars. On either side of the lower arches, which could take only feet, are carved two statues that represent expected river gods, while above them ran a frieze, or- almost never disappeared, and in depicting the triumphal procession Septimius Severus had accompanied him on the Capitol. The space between the tubes and the side frame supported includes columns from large-relief panels that polishing the most important facts of companies with military- Piute in the Parthian campaign.

Stunning picture. I like the way you have left the people in; they give it scale.

Maurizio, sensational this postcard. I have a healthy envy you, the possibilities of beautiful shots in the Forum. I love the stone route passing under the arch.

molto bella l'inquadratura, ma sempre a mio parere elaborazione troppo forte, sembra quasi un 3d!
