Arch of Nero

Nero. AD 54-68. Æ Sestertius (36mm, 26.67 g, 6h). Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. Struck circa AD 65Arch of Nero (Latin: Arcus Neronis) is a now lost triumphal arch dedicated to the Roman emperor Nero that was located in Rome, Italy.[1]The arch was erected in the years between A.D. 58 and 62 and was designed to commemorate victories won by Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo in Parthia (Tacitus Annales 13.41;[2] 15.18). Located on the slope of the Capitoline Hill in a locality referred to as inter duos lucos, the arch is known from coin representations, in which it appears as an arch with a single bay surmounted by a quadriga.[3]The arch likely was destroyed soon after Nero's death in A.D. 68.[4]References[edit]Jump up ^ Fred S.
