Arch of Titus

Arch of Titus


The Arch of Titus was constructed by his brother Domitian. It stands by the Colosseum on the Sacred Way leading to the center of the Forum. It contains a vaulted arch with columns and massive supporting walls.

Various friezes display Titus’ conquest of Judaea in 70 AD. Of particular interest is the famous frieze portraying the legions carrying off the treasures of the Temple.
