  The Arch of Janus
by martin_nl

This arch has four sides and was probably built around the time of Emperor Constantine. It was on a heavy traffic square and was the entrance to the Forum Boarium. It was a good place for entrepreneurs to do business under the arch because of the shadows. Above the four arches you can see little figurines of the goddesses Roma, Juno, Ceres and Minerva.

Address: Via del Velabro
Directions: From Circus Maximus follow the Via dei Cerchi to reach the Piazza della Bocca della Verita, where the Forum Boarium and the Santa Maria in Cosmedin are located.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
