As you are working your way from Piazza Venezia to the most Ancient Rome, you can’t miss this enormous well preserved victory column in honor of Emporer Trajan. The most puzzling thing occurred to me as I was walking past it. It is obvious that a lot of labor went to the intricate details inscribed all over it and at the top end. But, can anybody from the ground ever make out any of the detailed inscriptions from about 4 meters to the top? I don’t think so.
