Many of the monuments of the Forum Romanum, along with ancient occupation levels, gradually disappeared from view. 17). I mentioned to you, when we talked about the Forum Transitorium, that Domitian also had his eye on this property over here. You can already see, by looking at the plan, their location. The column shaft rests on a base, decorated with arms and armor, Dacian arms and armor, with a statue of Trajan up at the–a bronze statue of Trajan at the uppermost part. But if we look back at the Baths of Titus, you’ll remember that what made them distinctive, and what made them differ from the earlier Stabian Baths or Forum Baths at Pompeii, was the way in which they placed the bathing block in the center, rather than to the side; that they arranged the main rooms–the tepidarium, the frigidarium and the caldaria, in this case–in axial relationship to one another. This is the beginning of this experimentation that ultimately leads to this baroque element in Roman architecture that I’m going to talk about. Trajan’s Column, monument that was erected in 106–113 ce by the Roman emperor Trajan and survives intact in the ruins of Trajan’s Forum in Rome. Pontoon bridge with Roman soldiers (detail), Column of Trajan, Carrara marble, completed 113 C.E., Rome (photo: ElissaSCA © All rights reserved, by permission). Aug. 29.2), but the temple and forum complex would not be dedicated until 2 B.C.E. Constantine I officially relocated the administrative center of the Roman world to Constantinople in 330 C.E. Iron Age populations had used the marshy valley separating the Palatine and Capitoline hills as a necropolis (a large ancient cemetery), but the burgeoning settlement of archaic Rome had need of communal space and the valley was repurposed from a necropolis to a usable space. And what’s particularly interesting is that Apollodorus of Damascus, like Severus and Celer before him, appears to have been, above all, a great engineer. So putting two and two together, we have to go on the assumption that what we are looking at here is a rendition, on a coin, of the entrance gate into the Forum of Trajan, FORVMTRAIAN. Column of Trajan with St. Peter statue and coin with original Trajan statue at top / Wikimedia Commons. As Augustus had emerged as the sole leader of the Roman state, it was important for him to create and display messages of continuity and stability. But it is, at his death, it is taken over by Nerva and renamed the Forum of Nerva. emperor trajan. Ongoing archaeological fieldwork may yet shed light on this contentious topographical debate. An ongoing point of scholarly contention is the position and appearance of this plan. At the end again, the column, surrounded by the Greek and Latin libraries, the temple over here at the end. The column stands 38 meters tall and its frieze wraps around the column shaft 23 times, with a total length of roughly 190 meters. So in its own day it was, supposedly, the biggest in the world. Marble statue of Trajan / Photo by Thomas Thie, Colonia Ulpia Traiana, Wikimedia Commons. The column carries an helical frieze of historical relief that provides a pictorial narrative of the events of Trajan’s wars in Dacia (101–102 and 105–106 C.E. The fragments of the Severan plan provide valuable information about the design of this architectural complex and has led scholars to speculate that the inspiration for its design may have been the great market (macellum magnum) of the city that had likely been destroyed in the Great Fire of Rome in 64 C.E. You can see very clearly that it is based in general form on the Arch of Titus in Rome: a single central arcuated bay; the pedestals supporting double columns on either side; the inscription at the top; the receding panels on either side of that inscription. And then a covered bazaar up here. The construction of Caesar’s forum resulted in significant reorganization of the northwest corner of the Forum Romanum. The ruins themselves provided endless inspiration for artists, including painters the likes of Canaletto who became interested in the romanticism of the ruins of the ancient city as well as for cartographers and engravers the likes of G. B. Piranesi and G. Vasi, among others, who created views of the ruins themselves and restored plans of the ancient city. Forums were a place for people to meet and to market and to conduct law cases and so on, in the basilica. This is quite different from the Forum at Pompeii, where you’ll remember the basilica was splayed off, to the side. Forum of Trajan- patron. Trajan's Column commemorates the eponymous emperor's victory in the two Dacian wars (102-3; 105-6).The column, which was completed in 113, is almost all that is left standing of Trajan's Forum, the last of the great imperial fora to be built in ancient Rome. That also has a rectangular shape, but with these radiating alcoves, radiating alcoves that we’re going to see are screened by columns. Seven Hills of Rome (image, CC BY-SA 3.0), Situated astride the Tiber river, the site of Rome is noted for its low hills that are separated by deeply cut valleys. The complex was dedicated during the festivities surrounding Caesar’s triumph in September of 46 B.C.E. And he chose very carefully. Title: Forum of Trajan (Above: Basilica Ulpia interior, top right: Basilica Ulpia exterior,bottom right: Trajan markets) Artist: Apollodorus of Damascus Date: 106 - 112 C.E. I want you to look at the exedrae that you see on either side of the main space of the forum, and on either side of the basilica over here. But you can see the extraordinary difference in scale. following the emperor’s death). The entrance into the main part of the forum, rectangular in shape. at the northwestern corner of the forum square. Ferentino Market Hall / Wikimedia Commons. The sources claim that the Basilica Porcia (c. 184 B.C.E.) He also came to power as a relatively young man. You can identify them by their leggings and tunics and scraggly hair and beards, here. Plotina, his wife, was–she had no children of her own; she was crazy about Hadrian, very much his sponsor, and wanted to see him succeed Trajan. Our logo, banner, and trademark are registered and fully copyright protected (not subject to Creative Commons). You have shopping–there are 150 shops in the Markets of Trajan. Just as Trajan’s Column depicts that emperor’s conquest of Dacia, so does the tapestry depict the Norman conquest of England. You can see that Trajan continues this interest in ornamentation that was characteristic of the Flavian period: very ornamental architectural decoration, very deeply carved, with a strong contrast between light and dark. The Forum of Trajan (Forum Traiani), the final imperial forum, was both the largest and the most lavish. It is Apollodorus of Damascus. He is about to plunge that knife into his heart, so that he doesn’t have to be taken by the Romans. He has decided–you can see the Romans; he’s got Romans to the left of him, Romans to the right of him. And you can see that the façade is actually not straight, but convex, convex: a convex façade, which is very interesting, curved façade, with an elaborate entranceway over here. Viewing Trajan's Column was especially difficult from the small courtyard. The Romans had created a kind of pointing machine, which they used to make exact replicas of originals. See the bottom of each page for copyright information. I mentioned that they had casts of all the scenes from the Column of Trajan. This is the Basilica Ulpia in Rome, with a central nave, and side aisles, a couple of side aisles around it. You see the same three columns over here, and then you’ll recall the great open space, with colonnades on either side, and then the market area, the shops or tabernae on the left. With the deification of Julius Caesar, Augustus’ adoptive father, a temple dedicated to Caesar’s cult (templum divi Iulii) was constructed on the edge of the forum square (15 in the diagram below). But we’re not absolutely sure about its plan, that is, the Neronian Baths. You can see in this restored view, this series of tabernae down below; the attic up above. These devices that could create and continually reinforce not only a sense of community belonging but also the existing social hierarchy were of vital importance in archaic states. When Trajan died in 117 C.E., sources tell us that the Roman Senate allowed a special dispensation whereby Trajan’s cremated remains could be deposited in the base of the column and that a temple to his cult (Templum Divi Traiani et Plotinae) was added to the forum complex between 125 and 138 C.E. So bringing in some of those elements from sanctuary design, into bath design, in the Baths of Trajan in Rome. Why so well preserved? And his name says a lot about him: Apollodorus from Damascus, modern Syria. In particular the Romans established a tradition of constructing monuments commemorating famous men who had achieved great success in military and public careers. D. Watkin, The Roman Forum (Cambridge, Mass. Trajan died the 8 August AD 117, on the 9th it was announced at Antioch that he had adopted Hadrian. These large windows indicate to us that the architects are real masters of the concrete medium here, able to de-materialize the wall, by putting up these very, very large windows. Cupids, frieze-architrave, Temple of Venus Genetrix, Forum of Julius Caesar, 113 C.E., marble (Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali). Now we know quite a bit. And you can see that same, roughly that same scheme here. We should also not underestimate the psychological effect of these grandiose, soaring, bedecked complexes, based around massive open plazas, on the minds and experiences of city dwellers (many of whom lived in crowded squalor). It’s important for us to look back at the general plan of the Imperial Fora, to see where the Forum of Trajan fits in. From the Early Republican period the forum space saw the construction of key temples. The sixth century B.C.E. Mon-Wed: Closed | Tue–Sun: 9:00 AM-12:00 PM - 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM . We know that Trajan died on August 8th in 117 A.D. We know that on August 8th he had no successor officially chosen. Now that was no small feat in this particular part of the city, because most of this area was occupied by a hill; the so-called Quirinal Hill, in Rome, occupied most of this space. The Basilica Porcia served as an office for the tribunes of the plebs. Carved in bas relief, the exquisite frieze carefully narrates Trajan’s campaigns and its level of detail is simply astounding. (dedicated in 2 B.C.E.). Excavations in the Column court indicate that there were pre-existing roads and buildings on site, thus the mountain was the Quirinal slope cut back for the Forum piazza, northeast hemicycle, and the Markets of Trajan.While the Column shaft was an artificial unit of 100 Roman feet, it was increased and adjusted by the pedestal and other elements. Interior corridor of the hemicycle in Trajan’s Markets, Rome. The figures that are in the uppermost tier, of the main body of the forum, are depictions of captured Dacians; of Dacian prisoners brought back to Rome. C. Hülsen and J. – 14 C.E.) And if we look at it here, we see some interesting things. And I also thought I would mention–I’m sure all of you have been down to Ground Zero, but if you go a block or two away from Ground Zero itself, there’s the Fireman’s Memorial there, that was put up to many of the fireman who sadly lost their lives fighting those fires in the Twin Towers. This major investment in the creation of civic space and the organization of labor also provides important information about the socio-economic structure of early Rome (Livy 1.59.9). You can also see here the very large windows; the semi-dome, that I’ll show you in detail in a moment. The Forum Romanum played a key role in creating a communal focal point, one toward which various members of a diverse socio-economic community could gravitate. Perhaps the most poignant and interesting scene happens way up at the top of the column, where the leader of the Dacians, Decebalus, is shown kneeling, almost like one of those Victories, on the bull. The Roman forum was located between two of the seven columns of Rome, the Capitoline and the Palatine Hill. R. Meneghini and R. S. Valenzani, Scavi dei Fori imperiali: il Foro di Augusto: l’area centrale (Rome: “L’Erma” di Bretschneider, 2010). (Livy 1.6) The traditional … The Forum Romanum, despite being a relatively small space, was central to the function and identity of the city of Rome (and the wider Roman empire). F. Coarelli, Il foro romano, 2 v. (Rome: Edizioni Quasar, 1983-1992). This innovative complex was deemed one of Rome’s most beautiful monuments by Pliny the Elder and housed not only significant spoils from Jerusalem but also masterworks of Greek art that had previously been hoarded by the emperor Nero. forum, market and meeting ... a colonnade enclosing the temple of Venus. They have realized that they don’t even need a wall, to support vaults. 1500-1583) ; patron: Trajan, Emperor of Rome (Roman (ancient), 53-117) Download 047287_cp.jpg (262.5Kb) L. Ungaro, Il Museo dei Fori Imperiali nei mercati di Traiano (Milan: Electa, 2007). A pedestrian walkway, the Via Alessandrina, also allows for an excellent (and free) view of Trajan's Forum. Your legions stand at the ready to march out and establish the largest empire the world has ever seen. We’re again looking at that large hemicycle that served, with its seats that served for performances here. Pompey the Great, a political rival of Caesar, had dedicated a monumental theater and portico complex in the Campus Martius in 55 B.C.E. And that makes a lot of sense, again given that you could view it best from the two libraries on either side. I mean, this sort of thing absolutely presupposes this kind of architectural development. You can see it conforms to basilican architecture that we’ve looked at before, with a central nave, divided by its two side aisles–in this case, as you’ll recall in plan. And you see again the Baths of Titus here, located right again on top of this area that originally belonged to Nero’s Domus Aurea. saw rebuilding of structures and monuments that had been damaged by fire, including the rebuilding of the Curia Julia by the emperor Diocletian in the late third century C.E. He said: “You’re a great engineer. And once again, how fortunate we are that we have coins that say BASILICAVLPIA, Basilica Ulpia. You’ll recall that after Nero’s damnatio memoriae, and the coming to power of the Flavian dynasty, that Vespasian and Titus, and even Domitian, razed to the ground Nero’s buildings–Vespasian did that–and then he and Titus and Domitian built new buildings, on top of those, and chose to make those buildings the kind of public buildings that the citizenry as a whole would enjoy; from the Colosseum and amphitheater to the Baths of Titus. You’ll see these pilasters support, in the center, an arcuated pediment, and then on either side these broken triangular pediments, as if the pediment has broken, been broken, to allow the arcuated pediment to show through. and again after 283 C.E. And you actually see that bridge located here, which even increases the likelihood that Apollodorus of Damascus was the designer of this particular structure. Other, more elaborate basilicae were soon to be built, including the famous Basilica Aemilia, first built in 179 B.C.E., and remodeled from c. 55 to 34 B.C.E. And then at the apex, we see a good view of the top, with a statue of St. Peter; but we have coins depicting Trajan on–depicting the original statue–the base, the shaft, a portrait of Trajan, a naked portrait of Trajan, a heroicized portrait of Trajan, depicted after death, divinized at the apex of the column. We have not seen that, up to this point chronologically, in built architecture. Pliny the Elder deemed the Forum of Augustus one of three most beautiful monuments in the city of Rome (Pliny the Elder Natural History 36.102.5). Recent excavation at the northeast corner of the Palatine Hill. This is the Basilica Ulpia here. But this is a real tour de force, probably the greatest — certainly the greatest vaulting that we have seen thus far, and again a test to just how far the Romans have come from this to this, by the time of the emperor Trajan. So this gives you a very good idea of the entrance gate into this structure. While the forum was the Romans imposing a rectangular plan on nature–remember, they have to cut back the hill, to make way for it–the markets are something quite different. / Wikimedia Commons. E. Gjerstad, Early Rome, 7 v. (Lund: C.W.K. The forum of Trajan included markets, a basilica, an equestrian statue of the emperor and even a temple to himself. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! You see the Roman soldiers have gotten off boats. So he does continue this Flavian interest in very elaborate architectural decoration. Here we are looking at some of the columns from the Basilica that’s part of that forum, from the very well-preserved Column of Trajan. Like so many other emperors, when he first came to power, he looked around to see which buildings had fallen into disrepair, and he decided to restore as many of those as he could. A. J. Ammerman, “On the Origins of the Forum Romanum,” American Journal of Archaeology vol. And it is arguable, I think probably correct, that Trajan was the even greater of the two. Domitian adds a narrow forum, the so-called Forum Transitorium that served as a point of transit between the Roman Forum and the Subura here. Kleiner / 03.05.2009 (Historia Augusta – Hadrian 19.9). Here is a view of the great hemicycle, down on the first story. It brings in even more multifaceted civilizations around the world, and talent begins to pour into Rome from all of those places. Located in a valley separating the Capitoline and Palatine Hills, the Forum developed from the earliest times and remained in use after the city’s eventual decline; during that span of time the forum witnessed the growth and eventual contraction of the city and her empire. The Curia emerged perhaps in the seventh century B.C.E., although little is known about its earliest phases.

You can see it, if you wander through this park, you can see it from above, with a grate on top of it, as well as down below, if you visit the palace itself. Systematic exploration and study began under archaeologist Carlo Fea who started to clear the area near the Arch of Septimius Severus in 1803. But we’re getting even more ambitious vis-à-vis scale. We don’t know what Trajan actually–the northern end of the structure was not completed at Trajan’s death, and we don’t know if he would have put a temple there. by K. Raaflaub, K. and M. Toher, pp. Up above, once again, a chariot, in this case a four-horse chariot, seemingly with one figure, and a series of standards, being held, possibly by Roman soldiers. J. Geiger, The first hall of fame: a study of the statues in the Forum Augustum (Leiden: E. J. Brill, 2008). You’ll recall that Nerva was old, and in fact also relatively sickly, when he became emperor of Rome. The Imperial fora represent important architectural landscapes in the city of Rome. Carved in bas relief, the ex… Roman planners came to prefer them for lining the long sides of open squares, in a way not dissimilar from the Greek stoa. What’s interesting here is in the second story you see arcuated elements. So a series of bays, decorated with these aediculae with statues. A view of the Via Sacra Via, with the Artium Vestae in the foreground. L. Richardson, jr., A New Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1992). Plaster casts of the 155 scenes in the Museo della Civiltà Romana / Wikimedia Commons. Giovanni Battista Piranesi spent eight years researching the ancient ruins of Rome before completing his magnum opus, Le Antichità Romane. Rafała Taubenschlag, 2004). And for any of you interested in the fact that the Romans made nearly exact duplicates of things, mechanical copies, you can see in this particular statue–we rarely have this preserved, so it’s an interesting example of these points–you see these little excess pieces of marble. We see a personification of the Danube River, in that area up north, in Dacia, where the Romans went to conquer those tribes. And you’ll recall the so-called Esquiline Wing, which is the one wing of Nero’s Domus Aurea that is still preserved underground. Column of Trajan, Carrara marble, completed 113 C.E., Rome; dedicated to Emperor Trajan (Marcus Ulpius Nerva Traianus in honor of his victories over Dacia (now Romania) 101-02 and 105-06 C.E. Yes, we saw it in the paper topics, but that stuff is later. To read the story, the viewer must physical circle the Column, making following the narrative quite difficult. And I show you a view here, in fact, a plan of the so-called Baths of Trajan in Rome that were dedicated in A.D. 109. James J. Clauss and Daniel P. Harmon (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007). And I also want to point out, if you look very closely at the columns and the elements above them in the attic, you can see that the columns project, and the attic seems to have projecting entablatures. You can see that she’s winged. And then above you see that he has, unlike Trajan’s closely cropped Augustan-type hairstyle, you can see he has very long hair, and also a beard, and this identifies him as a very different–sort of boots that seem to be made out of suede or felt of some sort. Beyond the Forum of Augustus was the Forum of Trajan, a vast colonnaded square; then the Basilica Ulpia; then the two libraries with, between them, the Column of Trajan, which is still standing. You can think back way to the beginning of the semester when we talked about Julius Caesar and his architecture, and his bragging that he had built a–or one of the authors of that period tells us that Julius Caesar had built a Temple to Mars, the biggest in the world. I described this, I think, in the introductory lecture as in a sense opening up a series of umbrellas over the space. The archaeological remains of the Forum Romanum itself continue to provide important insights into the phases and processes associated with urbanism and monumentality in ancient Rome. We have looked at the Forum of Augustus, with its Temple of Mars Ultor. And then over here the polygonal masonry of the streets, looking very much like streets in Rome. Again, he obviously did not choose buildings of Nero, many of which had already been destroyed, in any case, but rather looked back further, in fact, dug deep into the Republic, a time, a simpler time in many respects, and a time prior to the shenanigans of the monarchically minded emperors like Nero and Domitian, and he restored buildings from the Republic and from the Augustan period.
