The Severan-era arch was commissioned by the bankers and merchants of the Forum Boarium (204 CE) in honor of the emperor Septimius Severus, according to the dedicatory inscription (CIL 6.1035). The entire monument, abutted by the much later S. Gorgio al Velabro church (7th-9th Century CE), served to announce the entrance to the Forum Boarium from the Velabrum neighborhood. Richly drilled decorative motifs frame the panels from top to bottom.
