  • The arch is located on the left side of the Church of St. George at the Velabro and was dedicated, in 204 A.D., by the "silvers" and the oxen merchants in Settimio Severo. The structure is very simple: two pillars (one is embedded in the church) lined with marble slabs support a horizontal marble lintel. It was one of the entrances to the Boario Forum

  • What most attracts us and makes us curious, you know that every single piece resting on the ground lives in history, myths and truths, that memory passed away to oblivion. Located in one of the richest in history, secluded and almost hidden, the Arcus argentariorum is against the Church of San Giorgio al Velabro. It is likely that gave access to the cattle market, in the area of the former river port. Was erected by powerful corporations of bankers and merchants of oxen in honor of Emperor Septimius Severus and his family. The work consists of two marble pillars supporting a horizontal lintel, on which a plant decoration spans almost the entire surface except the space reserved for the inscription and reliefs, while the façade outside was purposely left unfinished. You may notice some inspection holes dating from the middle ages, when spread the rumor that the monument there was hidden the treasure of 16 December 1996. But the Romans, fearing that the arc spoiling hopelessly, rose up in a popular motorcycle stopping the destruction.

  • Small door (and not an arc) next to the Church of San Giorgio al Velabro. Inexplicably high erased the borders defiling the vision. It takes its name from bankers (argentari) who along with dealers Bakr built this door that opened into the square of the old cattle market, in 204 a.d.
