Arch of Janus Quadrifrons
This massive Arch of Janus Quadrifrons at the Velabrum marks the northeastern border of the Forum Boarium, the cattle market of ancient Rome. It was constructed from bricks with white marble cladding. The building was probably erected by the emperor Constantine I the Great (306-337) and was also called Arcus Constantini. This image depicts the arch as it might have originally appeared with statuary in the niches and the roof in tact.
The verso of the leaf contains text in three languages with the page title in Italian: Tempio di Giano.
