The Arch of Janus is the only four sided triumphal arch preserved in Rome. It is located near the Forum Boarium. It was built in the early 4th century of materials scavenged from other buildings. Turn about fair play. It was built to honor Constantine I or Constantius II. Its current name is not ancient. The attic and top were torn down in 1830 because they were erroneously believed not to belong to the original structure. One can not approach the arch because of fencing. It has a new roof.
