Ab Urbe Condita

T. Livius

P. Cornelius Scipio Africanus, priusquam proficisceretur, fornicem in Capitolio adversus viam qua in Capitolium escenditur, cum signis septem auratis et equis duobus et marmorea duo labra ante fornicem posuit.

Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus, before he left the City, constructed an arch on the Capitoline, facing the street by which one climbs the Capitoline, with seven statues of bronze and two equestrian figures and two marble basins before the arch.
