Title

Arch of Titus

Description

Located on the via sacra, this arch was constructed by the emperor Domitian after the death of his older brother, emperor Titus, who ruled from 79 to 81 A.D. This arch commemorates their father, the emperor Vespasian as well. Military victories are shown on the arch, such as the siege of Jerusalem which occurred in 70 A.D. This arch deifies Titus, since he is shown on the arch being carried to the heavens by an eagle.
