Arch of Hadrian Profile in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

Roman Emperor Hadrian spent over half of his rule (117 – 138) traveling through his empire. During these extended tours, he strongly encouraged and often financed the construction of magnificent buildings. His trope included architects. This Arch of Hadrian was built in honor of his visit to Gerasa in 129-130 AD. Notice the Corinthian capitals at both the top and bottom of the columns.
