  • Great to see the Arch of Janus getting some tender love and care -- but just be aware some it is currently under scaffolding.  more »
  • Arco di Giano-Janusbuen is an ancient monument that was covered with marble and it is located near Piazza delle Bocca. Recommend that you visit if you are in the area. In ancient Rome had a prominent place at the end of the Forum Boarium. There are different assumptions and interpretations of what the construction was built for.

  • singular and most suggestive structure of late- Imperial rome
  • Old arch,not the most impressive in Rome
  • about arch of janus The Arch of Janus in Rome is an ancient Roman monument which is exceptional for being the only remaining triumphal arch in the city to have four faces, a design feature known as Quadrifrons. Constructed in the early fourth century AD, the Arch of Janus was located at the periphery of the Forum Boarium, once Rome’s cattle market. Built of brick and marble, the arch has alcoves which would have originally contained statues and other decorative items, however these have not survived. Little is known about this arch and, despite its name, the Arch of Janus was probably built in honour of Roman Emperor Constantine the Great. As such, it is often known as Arcus Constantini. As Constantine himself converted to Christianity after his victory in the civil wars, there is much debate as to whether such a triumphal arch would have been dedicated to a pagan deity by Constantine, further compelling the mystery surrounding this monument.
  • Amazing view!!
  • The Arch of Janus, Ianus Quirinus Latin is an ancient Roman arch found in the Boario Forum, near the Arcus Argentariorum quadruple. It is one of the few preserved Roman arches in Rome. The Arch of Janus, in latin Ianus Quirinus, is a former Quad Roman arch located in the Forum Boarium, near the bow of the Argentarios. It is one of the few Roman arches that are preserved in Rome.
