ARCUS NERONIS

erected between 58 and 62 A.D. by Nero to commemorate the victories of Corbulo over the Parthians (Tac. Ann. xiii. 41; xv. 18). It stood on the Capitoline hill inter duos lucos, and is represented on coins (Cohen, Nero 306-310 ; BM Nero 183-190, 329-334) as a single arch surmounted with a quadriga in the centre and bronze figures at the ends. There are no later references to this arch, and it was probably destroyed soon after Nero's death (Baumeister, Denkmaler, p. 1873).
