Description

A view of the triumphant arch of Porta Sempione in Milan. Atop the gate is a seiugis, a chariot drawn by six horses. On each corner is an equestrian statue of a half-nude male holding a laurel wreath outstretched. The gate contains one large arched passageway with a smaller one flanking each side.
