Arch of Septimius Severus - Rome

Situated close to the foot of the Capitoline Hill, the Arch of Septimius Severus was built in 203 as a celebration of military triumphs by Emperor Septimius Severus and his two sons, Caracalla and Geta over the Parthians in 195 and 199 respectively. Constructed of white marble, the monument consists of a central archway measuring twelve metres high and two smaller side arches measuring just over seven metres high and connected to the main archway through two lateral openings. The arch is decorated with relief panels depicting various stages of the war between the Romans and the Parthians. Others show Winged Victories. The arch is one of two remaining triumphal arches found in the Roman Forum, the other being the Arch of Titus.
