Trajan commemorated his victory over the Dacians by building a forum that would surpass all other fora in splendor and scale. The architect Apollodorus of Damascus designed this forum. Much of the Quirinal hill (61 million cubic meters) was cut away to make room for Trajan's Forum.
This picture is a stitch together of pictures I took of Trajan's Marketplace to give you a wide angle view.
