 Trajan's Column
Marcus Ulpius Traianus, Roman Emperor AD 98-117 Trajan was born in about the year AD 53 in Spain, the son of a Consul and thus a member of a noble Roman family.
There are some possible explanations, including the argument that any Roman observer would have been familiar with the story which the relief narrates and would not have needed to see all the scenes in detail to understand the monument, but no explanation is wholly satisfying.
What is clear, however, is that the Romans were well aware of this problem with visibility: when the Column of Marcus Aurelius was carved about 70 years later, its designers increased the height of the spiral band and cut much deeper into the stone to make the figures easier to see.
