One of the larger arches in Ephesus, well restored to give a good impression of the original. Part of the tour of the city.

Dominatius temple was the first temple to be built in the name of an emperor and it was located next to the Domitian Square . The Polio Fountain and Memmius Monument stands opposite of each other.

Located on Curetes Street, after the Pollio Fountain and near the Memmius Monument is Dominatius Square. I stopped in this area for a few minutes and snapped a few pictures- nothing really stood out to me other than the arch. If it wasn't just on the way to Celsus, I'd say skip it.
