Arch of Constantine, Rome: 75 reviews and 143 photos
The Arch of Constantine was erected by the Senate in A.D. 315 to honor Constantine's defeat of the pagan Maxentius. The arch is full of pictures apparently all relating to victories of earlier rulers & lifted from other, memorials but nothing to do with Constantine himself!!
Interestingly, Constantine converted to Christianity after a vision on the battlefield. This ended centuries of christian persecution and culminated in Rome becoming the centre of Christian religion (until an English king wanted a divorce etc).
