Next to the archaeological site of the Olympeion, is the triumphal arch that was built by the Athenians in 131-132 AD to honor the Roman emperor Hadrian for his numerous works in Athens. Hadrian passed under this gate when he came to inaugurate the monumental temple of Olympian Zeus, which started to be built in the 6th century BC but it was completed in his reign.
