Foro di Traiano - Trajan Forum

by Sorin Krammer December. 16, 2007 4570 views

Trajan's Forum is chronologically the last of the Imperial Forums of Rome. The ruins of Trajan's Forum rise 16 feet below modern street level in the heart of Rome, and resemble pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. These are the ruins of an exceptional monument, begun during Trajan's principate and finished by his successor, Hadrian, in A.D. 128. Though the forum was described by the historian Ammianus Marcellinus (A.D. 330-395) as “a gigantic complex…beggaring description and never again to be imitated by mortal men,” today's battered remains convey little of its past glory.
