The Arch of Augustus is an important monument found in the city of Susa, Piedmont in the province of Turin. It was probably originally built at the end of the 1st century BC to record the peace between Emperor Augustus and Marcus Julius Cottius, king of the Cottian Alps. The arch, together with other remains from the period, such as the Roman amphitheatre, underline the importance that the city of Susa had during the Roman period.
