From the Column of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina in Piazza Colonna, Rome. The column was erected in c. 180 CE and depicts in relief sculpture the emperor's campaigns across the Danube between 172 and 175 CE. In this detail the Roman Army crosses the Danube into barbarian territory over a pontoon bridge, probably in 172 CE.
