The Arch of Hadrian was built by the city of Athens to celebrate a visit by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in AD 131 or 132. Its structure is similar to that of a Roman triumphal arch with a single opening, but the attic of the arch is occupied by a series of Corinthian columns supporting a triangular pediment in the center and an entablature on each side.
