Traduitionally, this is the place where Pilate presented Jesus to the people with the words "Ecce Homo" ["Behold the Man"]. Right at the beginning of the Via Dolorosa, the Ecce Homo arch spans the route. When the entire arch was exposed, prior to the building of the Convent, it was found that the arch was, in fact, part of a triple arch. The arch spanning the Via Dolorosa is probably the victory arch built by the Emperor Hadrian in 135AD. The other two arches have been incorporated into the Church of Ecce Homo, the third arch framing the altar.
