The Triumphal Gate and Bridge. According to one source, the Pons Triumphalis has been destroyed. It may have been another name for the Pons Vaticanus. It may have been built by Nero or Caligula. It was probably destroyed in the 4th century. The bridge connected the Campus Martius with the Campus Vaticanus. It may have been used by the Via Triumphalis to cross the Tiber.
