The arch is one of the most quintessential features of Roman architecture. It appears in aqueduct arcades, bridges, and many monumental structures like free-standing amphitheaters, stadiums, etc. Although the Romans didn’t create the arch, they certainly perfected its use in their constructions. Possibly the Romans were first exposed to the arch by the Etruscans (as indicated by the early archaeological record).
