  Galerius's Arch
by mikey_e

Galerius's Arch was constructed in 303AD in order to commemorate Galerius's victory over the Persians. Scenes from the battle can clearly be scene as bas relief on the sides of the arch. The arch is also remarkable because it is surrounded by the modern shops and cafés of a predominantly student quarter of the city.
