Original lithograph with colour, linen backed, printed by Lucien Serre & Cie, Paris, 1931. 990 x 630 mm.
Depicting the Ctesiphon Arch.
Ctesiphon is located approximately at Al-Mada'in, 32 km southeast of the modern city of Baghdad, Iraq, along the river Tigris. Ctesiphon measured 30 square kilometers, more than twice the surface of 13.7-square-kilometer fourth-century imperial Rome.
The archway of Chosroes (Taq Kasra) was once a part of the royal palace in Ctesiphon and is estimated to date between the 3rd and 6th centuries AD. It is located in what is now the Iraqi town of Salman Pak.
