Arch of Commodus, Lambaesis: Raking view of remains of arch
Lambaesis, or Lambaesa, is a Roman ruin in Algeria, 7 miles (11 km) southeast of Batna and 17 miles (27 km) west of Timgad, located next to the modern village of Tazoult. It was the camp of Roman Third Legion from 123 to 129 CE; capital of Roman province of Numidia 193-211; declined in 4th century. Commodus reigned from 180 to 192 CE. There are two triumphal arches at the site, one to Commodus, and the other to Septimius Severus.
