A detail from the Arch of Constantine I in Rome. Dedicated in 315 CE, the triumphal arch celebrates the emperor's victory over the Roman tyrant Maxentius in 312 CE. Between two Dacian prisoners taken from an earlier monument to Trajan, are two sculpted 3x2 m panels (of 8 in total) which were taken from a now lost monument in honour of Marcus Aurelius (c. 176 BCE).
