The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill.  It was erected to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius in 312.  It was dedicated in 315.  The top is brickwork faced with marble.  The general design is modeled after the Arch of Septimius Severus.  The arch spans the Via Triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.  Works of restoration were first carried out in the 18th century; the last excavations have taken place in the late 1990s.
