Reconstruction of image of Apollodorus of Damascus
Reconstruction of the image of Apollodorus of Damascus. He was one of the most famous architects of antiquity. He worked for Emperor Trajan, for whom he was extremely useful, among others during the so-called Dacian wars – he designed a bridge that was thrown across the Danube to make it possible for Roman legions to cross the river.
In addition, he designed Trajan’s Forum, the triumphal arches of the emperor in Benevento and Ancona, and perhaps participated in the creation of one of the wonders of ancient architecture – Pantheon.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
