About Trajan Arch of Ancona

The Trajan Arch of Ancona (L’Arco di Traiano di Ancona) is a second century monument built in honour of the Emperor Trajan.

Designed by Apollodorus of Damascus and constructed in 115 AD to thank the emperor for his renovation of the local harbour, the Trajan Arch of Ancona would have been adorned with friezes and statues.

However, despite the fact that many of the decorations of the Trajan Arch of Ancona have now disappeared, it is still an impressive monument, looming over the city.
