Trajan’s Column. Rome

The column of Trajan, like that of Marcus Aurelius, is a column storied coclide, decorated with a continuous spiral frieze in relief.

In 113 AD it was erected in the center of the courtyard of the two libraries in Trajan’s Forum to celebrate the victories of Trajan over the Dacians in the country from 101 to 106 AD. The restoration was carried out after the event of vandalism which occurred on the night of December 31, 1999.
