About This Image
Provenance: old collection of J. Harrison, Jr. purchased in 1861.
Trajan's column was erected in A.D. 106 to 113 in honor of emperor Trajan. It was located at the then just completed Trajan forum and surrounded by buildings. The column commemorates his victories in Dacia (now Romania). The Trajan column including its base is 42 meters high (138 ft.). This was exactly the height of the hill that stood at this site. It had been leveled to create an open space for the construction of Trajan's Forum.
