Rome. Italy. View past an egg and dart architectural fragment of the white marble triumphal Arch of Septimius Severus (Arco di Settimio Severo) at the northern end of the Roman Forum. The Arch was erected in 203 AD to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the emperor’s accession. The reliefs on the arch depict scenes from two decisive Persian campaigns. The Roman Forum was the centre of political, commercial and judicial life in ancient Rome.
