Arch of Constantine in Rome,Italy

uploaded by: Victoria

Description: The Arch of Constantine was built in the 4th century and was situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected c. 315 as a triumphal arch in ancient Rome by the Roman Senate in honor of victory of Constantine I over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep.
The Arch has a rich ornamentation, with many sculptural groups and elements. In terms of style, the sculptural decoration of the arch was influenced by changes in the monumental plastic art of the 4th century.

Constantine the Great, 272 – 337, (Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus) known as Constantine I or Saint Constantine, was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. He was the first Roman emperor who proclaimed the Christianity as the official religion throughout the empire.
