The monument was erected on the place where legio XXI Rapax had previously been defeated in 92. Before Trajan's construction, an altar existed there, on the walls of which were inscribed the names of the 3,000 legionaries and auxilia who had died "fighting for the Republic".

The present edifice is a reconstruction dating from 1977, including the original steps and the nucleus of the monument, while most of the covering stones are contemporary. The monument was ~40 wide and 40 m tall.

On the monument was a frieze comprising 54 metopes (1,58 m tall) depicting the battle and the following situation. 48 metopes are hosted in the Adamclisi museum in Corbu village, and one metope is hosted by Istanbul Archaeology Museum, the rest having been lost. Also there were 26 crenels with bassoreliefs of Dacian and their allies as prisoners, of which 23 are preserved in the Adamclisi museum.

The "Small Trophy", a monument found in the ruins of the Roman city Civitas Tropaensium, ~2 km from Tropaeum Traiani monument. This statue is a 4th century replica of the previous one and was made by the citizens in the honour of emperor Constantine who had rebuilt the city.

About Jerash, Jordan

Jerash is considered one of the most important and best preserved Roman cities in the Near East. It was a city of the Decapolis. Jerash was the birthplace of the mathematician Nicomachus of Gerasa (Greek: Νικόμαχος) (c. 60 – c. 120 AD).

After the Roman conquest in 63 BC, Jerash and the land surrounding it were annexed by the Roman province of Syria, and later joined the Decapolis cities. In AD 90, Jerash was absorbed into the Roman province of Arabia, which included the city of Philadelphia (modern day Amman). The Romans ensured security and peace in this area, which enabled its people to devote their efforts and time to economic development and encouraged civic building activity.

In the second half of the first century AD, the city of Jerash achieved great prosperity. In AD 106, the Emperor Trajan constructed roads throughout the province and more trade came to Jerash. The Emperor Hadrian visited Jerash in AD 129-130. The triumphal arch (or Arch of Hadrian) was built to celebrate his visit. A remarkable Latin inscription records a religious dedication set up by members of the imperial mounted bodyguard "wintering" there. The city finally reached a size of about 800,000 square meters within its walls.
