Arch of Janus is the only arch in Rome that is open on all four sides. It was located on a very important intersection.

Constantine II erected it to honor Emperor Constantine in 4th c. AD. The Frangipani family turned it into a fort in the Middle Ages, a fate also shared by the Colosseum and Theatre of Marcellus.
