Jerash, Part II: Hadrian's Arch

This structure was built around 129/130 BC to commemorate Caesar Publius Aelius Traianus Hadrianus Augustus' visit to Jerash.

It is perhaps the easternmost structure dedicated to Roman Emperor Hadrian. The westernmost structure is, maybe, the Vallum Aelium in England.

We took a shot here before we leave Jerash.
