Ponte Fabricio, which was originally known as Pons Fabricius, is the oldest bridge (still existing in its original state) in Rome, dating back to 62 BCE.
Ponte Fabricio is also known as Ponte dei Quattro Capi, on account of the four heads (quattro capi) which crown each of the two pillars on the parapet. It has also been called Ponte degli Ebrei (Bridge of the Jews), because of its close proximity to what was once the Jewish Ghetto.
The main inscription, which is repeated above each arch, commemorates the builder of the bridge, Lucius Fabricius: L · FABRICIVS · C · F · CVR · VIAR · FACIVNDVM · COERAVIT. (Lucius Fabricius, son of Caius, Superintendent of Streets, undertook to have this built.) The shorter inscription above the central arch proclaims: EIDEMQVE · PROBAVEIT. (And approved it himself.)
