  • The column is a real history book in marble, telling the wars of conquest of the Empire's soldiers. A true masterpiece.

  • The 200 metres of continuous stained frieze coil around for 23 times. 33, torture scene of Roman prisoners by the Dacians. The scene 104, decebal's speech. From 104 to 108, Dacian chiefs suicide by poison. The scene 109, the presentation of the head of Decebalus to Emperor Trajan. Column is very popular among Romanians because a little bit of their history; this explains the fact that in Bucharest there is a copy of the column with the size of the original column (National History Museum of Romania in Bucharest)
