Arriving at Viminacium, and Crossing the Danube

This image shows the end of the first panel, and beginning of the second panel, of Trajan's Column. The first panel shows the supplies for Trajan's armies arriving at Viminacium. The second panel shows Trajan's troops crossing a floating bridge that has been made from their boats. The large figure is the numen representing the spirit of the Danube River; this river deity is shown approving Trajan's construction of a bridge across its domain.
