ARCH OF GALLIENUS

Known as the Esquiline Gate, this triumphal arch was built by Emperor Augustus in 262 CE as part of the Servian Walls that protected the ancient City of Rome from invasion. There is only a partial inscription left intact on the monument today. Translated from Latin, it reads: “To Gallienus, the most clement Emperor, and to Salonina, most holy Augusta Empress”. Dedicated by Eques Aurelius Victor.
