Arch of Augustus, Rome
A large inscription was found in the same location in 1546 AD, with a dedication to Augustus, so the identification of the arch is certain. Very little remains of the arch itself, but its appearance is known from coins of the period. It had three passageways, the first such arch in Rome, and served as a model for the Arch of Septimius Severus, which was the model for the later Arch of Constantine.
