Arch of Tiberius

Arch of Tiberius

The Arch of Tiberius ("Arcus Tiberi") was built to celebrate the recovery of the Roman standards that had been lost to Germanic tribes by Varus in 9 CE. Germanicus recovered the standards in 15 or 16 CE.

The arch spanned the "Vicus Jugarius" between the Temple of Saturn and the Basilica Julia. The Arch of Tiberius is dedicated to Tiberius, due to the fact that in the imperial period only the emperor could celebrate a triumph, so the victory of Germanicus was celebrated as a triumph of Tiberius. Very little is known about this monument. It is mentioned in literary sources, and it is known from a relief on the Arch of Constantine. It appears to have been a single arch, like the later Arch of Titus, flanked by two columns of the Corinthian order. The foundations of the arch have been found on the Forum Romanum, but nothing is visible.
