Arch of The Fabii


A triumphal arch on the Sacra Via, principal street of ancient Rome, at the entrance to the Forum Romanum Magnum. The arch was erected by the Roman general Quintus Fabius Maximus Allobrogicus about 120 B.C., to commemorate his successful campaign against the Allobroges.

The arch was restored in 56 BCE by the grandson of Fabius.

Some fragments of the dedicatory inscription were found in the 16th century but otherwise little is known about the arch.
