This paper argues against recent attempts to revise established notions about the original funerary purpose of the Column of Trajan and about a Trajanic date for its frieze. An introductory section discusses the Column as a result of funerary planning under Trajan. Subsequent discussion offers a number of positive reasons for viewing the frieze as a Trajanic work based on evidence for the construction dates of the Column, on the largely overlooked possibility of activity in the years AD 113–117, and on the evidence provided by contemporary coins.
