CDR-1206: SR Set: Ancient Art: Roman Architecture

Roman architecture illustrated in this set is characterized by the trabeated frontal temple type such as the temple of Fortuna Virilis (Portunus), but more especially by the arcuated plastic forms of the round arch and vaulting, which was enabled by the revolutionary development of structurae caementiciae, or concrete. Innovative use of concrete enabled the construction of such monuments as the Pantheon, the Colosseum, and the Markets of Trajan. Other Roman monuments included here are the remains of structures of the various Roman Fora; the Ara Pacis Augustae; triumphal arches of Titus, and Constantine; and the nearby seaside town of Ostia Antica. Also included are monuments from the far flung regions of the empire: the Maison Carrée and Pont du Gard in France, the Aqueduct in Segovia, Spain, and Hadrian's Wall in Britain. Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections. You do not need to order an entire set; you can also order individual images from each Set.
