Built in the Republican period so that the VIA NOMENTANA could pass the ANIENE RIVER
It was destroyed by the Goths of Totila in the year 549
Rebuilt by the Byzantine general Narses in 552
The current upper part dates back to that time, while the central arch is of the first century AD
It was fortified under Pope Adrian I (772/795)
Restored under Nicholas V Parentucelli (1447/51) and also under Innocent X Pamphilj (1644/55)
After being damaged in 1849 by the French army it was again restored
Now it is inserted in a PUBLIC PARK and the stretch of Via Nomentana to which it belongs has been closed to traffic
