The 126-foot-tall monument, known as Trajan's Column, commemorates the Roman Emperor Trajan's victory in the Dacian Wars. Trajan himself commissioned it and the forum in which it stands. Its construction was most likely ordered by the Roman Senate and supervised by Apollodorus of Damascus. "Two Heads" comes from the bas-relief frieze that spirals 23 times around the column.
