About Trajan Arch of Benevento
The Trajan Arch of Benevento (Arco di Traiano di Benevento) is one of several Arches of Trajan built in honour of this famous Roman emperor.
Originally located along the Appia Antica, one of the oldest roads leading to Rome, the Trajan Arch of Benevento was constructed between 114 AD and 116 AD and, like its counterparts, was built in honour of Rome’s thirteenth emperor, Trajan, who reigned from 98 AD to 117 AD.
A marble structure depicting events in the emperor’s life, including real as well as mythological depictions, the Trajan Arch of Benevento is very well preserved.
Via Appia Antica, built in 312 BC, is one of the most important roads leading to Rome.
The Roman Theatre of Benevento is a well-preserved semi-circular Roman theatre that was built under the Emperor Hadrian.
