Notes NOTES: The arch was erected in the 1st century A.D. by the Gavi family celebrating the accomplishments of their family. This comes from a sketchbook put together by Ambrose Phillipps containing measured drawings and engravings of French and Roman buildings as well as designs for the house and garden buildings at Garendon Park, Leicestershire, the compiler's home.
