Janus Arch

 

There seem to have been two versions of the Roman God Janus – one with two faces and one with four. The ‘Janus Arch’ in Rome – with its four openings – is said to be linked to the latter. It seems an appropriate image to link to our “four-faced” human social instincts. Maybe the Romans knew something we have forgotten?
