27/4/16 – Imperial Fora [Day 2]

Trajan’s Column in Rome, dated to AD 113, stands in the Forum of Trajan some 125 feet tall, celebrating victory in the Dacian Wars. The Column, shaped like a scroll, has a spiral frieze depicting events in Dacian Wars (First War – AD 102-3 and Second War – AD 105-6).

In this scene from the column Trajan is presented with severed enemy heads by two auxiliaries.
