The inscription on the arch of Septimius Severus in Rome (203 CE). It is repeated on both façades, and shows that the triumphal arch was dedicated to Emperor Septimius Severus and his two sons Caracalla and Geta who ‘restored the Republic and expanded the dominion of the Roman people’ in successful military campaigns against the Parthians.
