Arc Dativius Victor

Hotels near Arc Dativius Victor, Wiesbaden, Germany .

The Arc de Dativius Victor is a popular landmark in the city of Mainz, which is the capital of the German federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate. It is also one of the oldest surviving monuments in the city.

The Arc was believed to have been constructed during the 3rd century, during the time when Mainz served as the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire. It was named after Dativius Victor, who was believed to have been the decurion that instigated the construction of the arch. This assumption was based on a dedication that was found on the arch written in Latin and was translated as "...the porches that Dativius Victor decurion the city of Taunensii, former priest promised the people of Mainz his son and heir Victorius Ursus frumentarius and Victorius Lupus have made."

The Arc de Dativius Victor measures 4.55 meters long and 6.5 meters high. The different signs of the zodiac decorate the center of the arch. On the side pillars of the arch are key images such as the image of the Roman god Jupiter holding a thunderbolt, and of Juno holding a scepter with vine branches surrounding the two images.

Although the Arc de Dativius Victor stands right near the Castle Electors of in the Roman-Germanic central district of the city, this is just a replica of the original arch. The original, which was unearthed in 1911, was reconstructed and is currently housed in the Landesmuseum located near the replica.
