Arch of Marcus Aurelius, Tripoli, Libya

Libya-5, originally uploaded by Abhishek's Received Postcards.

Built in 163 AD in the Greek style this arch straddles the decumanus maximus and the cardo-maximus in the ancient Roman city of Oea which is now Tripoli. Besides Roman columns re-used in newer buildings in the medina, this is the only exisring Roman monument in the city.
