A l'occasion de notre 500ième cache trouvée/By the occasion of our 500th found cache



Français

Arc Municipal

Peut-être contemporain du mausolée, il passé pour le plus ancient des arcs romains de la Narbonnaise. Sur les passages de la grande voie des Alpes, il marquait l’entrée de Glanum. Il a des proportions parfits (12,5 m de longueur, 5,5 m de largueur et 8,6 m de hauteur. La qualité de son décor sculpté est exceptionelle.

Mausolée

A l’exeption de la pomme de pin qui coiffait sa coupole, ce mausolée de 18 m de haut, un des plus beaux du Monde Romain, nous est parvenu intact. Des bas-reliefs représentants des scènes de batailles et de chasse ornent les 4 faces du socle carré. Au premiere étage du Mausolée, on peut lire sous une frise à sujet marin une insciption. Il s’agit d’une dédicase que 3 frères firent graver en l’honneur de leur père et grand-père, dont les statues sont placées à l’intérieur de la rotonde à colonnade corinthienne du deuième étage.

English

Triumphal Arch

The triumphal arch was built during the early Roman empire, indicating the entry road to Glanum along the great way of the Alps (the main Italy road). This is the oldest arch of the Narbonensis region, and probably influenced other arches and some of the 12th-century doorways.

Mausoleum

This is the most outstanding and best-preserved mausoleum of the Roman world. The structure is elegant and well-proportioned, standing 18 m high. The podium base is decorated with bas reliefs on all sides, representing battle and hunting scenes. The second level is a four-sided arch decorated with naval scenes including dragons, griffins, tritons and sea-monsters. The top level is a rotunda of narrow Corinthian columns enclosing two statues and capped with a pointed roof.
