Arch of Portugal.
Domitian Arch, now the Arch of Portugal. While there is information about the Arch of Portugal in Rome, it is not usually connected to Domitian. It was a single archway with columns on either side and connected two buildings. It was called the Arch of Portugal because on the eastern side of the arch was the residence of the Portuguese ambassador. The arch may have served as an approach to the area of the Temple of the Sun. Dating this arch is difficult because it seemed to utilize reliefs and panels from earlier monuments.
The verso of this leaf contains text in three languages with page title in Italian: L Arco di Domitano.
