The arch, built by the senate, is 21 Meters high and around 26 meters wide. It is made out of a rectangular block of white proconnesian marble and consists of three separate arches.
Several scenes inscribed in the arch depict a lion hunt, boar hunt, bear hunt, and sacrificial ceremonies in honor of herculies, apollo, and silvanus. There is also an inscription, written in gilded bronze, on either side of the arch, celebrating the victory of constantine.

The monument suffered in later times, becoming a part of a fortress under the Frangipane in the Middle Ages
