This triumphal arch was built by Athenians on an ancient street that led from the old section of Athens to the new, Roman section built by Hadrian.
"The central arched opening of the monument is supported by pilasters crowned with Corinthian capitals. Similar, but taller pilasters flank the outer corners. The arch is crowned by a series of Corinthian columns and pilasters, with an Ionic architrave at the ends, and an entablature with a triangular pediment in the middle. The whole monument is made of Pentelic marble." --Greek Ministry of Culture web site: http://www.culture.gr/2/21/211/21103n/e211cn01.html
