Arch of Gratian, Theodosius, and Valentinian
The Arch of Gratian. The Arch of Gratian, Theodosius, and Valentinian was erected between 379-383 AD. Its purpose was to mark the pilgrimage road from St. Peter's to St. Paul's. The arch is no longer standing, but it is thought that it was built into the bell tower of the medieval church of San Celso. The arch finally collapsed in the time of Pope Urban V.
