The Septizonium was constructed by Septimus Severus and dedicated in 203 AD. It was located in the southeast corner of the Palatine Hill and was several stories high. It was meant to be an impressive welcoming façade to the city. Fragments of the façade existed until the sixteenth century. The title mentions that this structure was near the Baths of Caracalla (Antoninus) which were both on the Appian Way. There is evidence of a water basin found in the 1980s.
