Triumphal arch of Glanum
The Triumphal arch of Glanum was built following the victory of the Romains over the Gaulois. It is very similar to the Roman arcs which one finds in the towns of Orange and Carpentras, in the Vaucluse.
On with dimensions ones of this triumphal arch, one can see two couples of Gallic connected, symbol of the domination of the Romans on the latter. This monument is near the mausoleum.
The construction of this building does not seem related to a particular military event, whereas that was of habit in Antiquity. The high parts unfortunately did not reach us. They were destroyed and one can imagine that the arc then had a majesty which somewhat gave up it. According to certain specialists, its high parts “must be restored with a tabular form, to balance the low parts; one could include there the reason for a pediment in triangle”.
