Remains second Titusboog in Rome found

Archaeologists have discovered during excavations in Rome the remains of a second triumphal arch of the Roman emperor Titus found.

In the historic Circus Maximus are under more pieces of a marble pedestal found, reported the service culture of Rome on Friday.

The remains of the arch are again in the ground stopped until Rome has enough money to put all the pieces on to dig in and the bow restoration. The service culture suspect that the monument inter alia, consisted of three arches and four free standing columns.

The already well-known triumphal arch of Titus stands at the beginning of the Forum. That Forum at the time was the political, religious and commercial centre of Rome.

The bow is probably in the first century after Christ was built by order of emperor Domitian, in honour of his deified brother and predecessor, Titus.

Today the Roman Forum is one of the biggest tourist attractions of the historic Italian capital.
