The Severan Bridge (also known as Cendere Bridge) is a Roman bridge located near the ancient city of Arsameia (today Eskikale), 55 km (34 miles) north east of Adıyaman in southeastern Turkey. It was built by the Sixteenth Roman legion stationed at Samosata (Samsat) in the last years of the 2nd century CE. The columns on the southeastern end of the bridge were dedicated to emperor Septimius Severus and his wife Julia Domna.
