Reconstruction of image of Apollodorus of Damascus
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.
