Original construction 1517-1575; Obelisk added in 1711
This image shows a detail of the Pantheon fountain in front of Pantheon. The portico of the Pantheon is in the background. The Latin inscription SPQR above the figure is translated as "Senatus Populusque Romanus" (senate and people of Rome). The designer was Jacopo della Porta. The addition of the obelisk removed a smaller basin at the top of the fountain.
