an arch erected in commemoration of the victory of Marcus Aurelius over the Germans and Sarmatians in 176 A.D., according to an inscription (CIL vi. 1014) that was seen and copied by the compiler of the Einsiedeln Itinerary. This arch probably spanned the CLIVUS ARGENTARIUS (q.v.) at its junction with the via Lata, and is that referred to in a forged bull 1 of John III (Jord. ii. 669) as arcus Argentariorum, and in the Mirabilia (ch. 5) as arcus Panis Aurei in Capitolio (PBS iii. 252-253 ; Jord. i. 2. 214).

1 The description of the boundaries of the parish of SS. Apostoli, which the bull purports to give, is taken from a bull of Lucius III of 1183 (Kehr, Italia Pontificia i. 72-73).
