Damascus. Syria. View of the Roman Arch that marks the start of the Christian quarter in the old city. Dating from the second century AD, the arch laid buried and forgotten below the surface of the modern street until recent times. It is believed the Arch was part of a Tetrapylon and stood on the Decumanus Maximus at the intersection of a major cross street – Straight Street with Cardo Maximus.
