The Arch of Alexander Severus is a Roman triumphal arch located in Dougga Tunisia (ancient Thugga). The arch was built in 228 CE, in gratitude to the emperor for his beneficence towards the city. It functioned as one of the city gates, at the end of a road linking to the road between Carthage and T├ębessa.
