This magnificent monument, the Arco di Constantino (Arch of Constantine) being overshadowed by the Colosseum (seen on the right in V1), is often ignored in favour of its neighbour. Built in AD 315, it was raised to commemorate the triumph of Emperor Constantine over Maxentius, his imperial rival, at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in AD 312 just north of Rome. It's the city's largest and best preserved arch, and one of the last major monuments built in ancient Rome.
