Long Description:
[FR]
"Le forum d’Arles est la première grande réalisation urbaine vers 30-20 av. J.-C. de la colonie romaine fondée en 46 av. J.-C. pour remercier Arelate de son soutien à César.

Conformément aux usages de l’urbanisme romain, ce forum prend place à l’intersection des deux voies majeures de la cité : le cardo (nord-sud) et le decumanus (est-ouest).
Le forum d'Arles est constitué d’une grande place dallée de 3 000 mètres carrés1, dont seuls deux fragments ont été conservés. Initialement le forum est encadré par quatre portiques monumentaux joints par autant de galeries à arcades. Il est évoqué par des auteurs anciens tels que Sidoine Apollinaire en 461 qui nous en dresse une description, « encombré de colonnes et de statues»."
