From the base of Trajan's Column

From the lapidary capitals on the base of Trajan's Coulmn in the Forum of Trajan, Rome, dated 113 AD. This always-visible monument was an inspiration for many, and the beauty of the lettering is accompaied by subtlety: because the top line of lettering is about two metres above eye-level, that row is LARGER than the lower ones!
