List of Roman triumphal arches
- For the history of triumphal arches, see Triumphal arch.
- For post-Roman triumphal arches, see List of post-Roman triumphal arches.
This is a list of Roman triumphal arches. All currently surviving Roman arches date from the imperial period (1st century BC onwards). They were preceded by honorific arches set up under the Roman Republic, none of which survive. Triumphal arches were constructed across the Roman Empire and remain one of the most iconic examples of Roman architecture.
