mentioned by Magister Gregorius in the twelfth century. Est enim arcus Triumphalis Magni Pompeii, ualde mirandus, quem habuit de uictoria quam obtinuit uicto Metridate (61 B.C.). Its sculptures represented his triumph with a long train of waggons laden with spoils. Rushforth (JRS 1919, 40, 54-55) maintains that this arch had a real existence (cf. Petrarch, Ep. de reb. famil. vi ii.: hic Pompeii arcus, haec porticus, quoted also by Nibby, Roma Antica, ii. 616), but his opinion is not shared by Prof. Hulsen, who points out that the triumphal arch is a creation of the Augustan period (Festschrift fur Hirschfeld, 428).
