|Completed 80AD, so 2011-80=1,931 years ago!!!|
|Neighboring the Colosseum was the Arch of Constantine, dedicated to him |
by the people in 315AD after he finally took down Maxentius (who nobody really liked).
We returned to the Colosseum about two days later to explore the inside (as much as was open) during the day. If it screamed "I am ROME and I am on top of the WORLD" from the outside, then the inside, well, it just screamed it louder.
|The view off of the colosseum was packed full of other major sights too; Ancient Rome was still everywhere.|
|Stadium of Domitian's Palace, around 6th Century-- they're not quite sure what the stadium was used |
for (private track? public stadium?) but it this guy was clearly loaded.
|Arch of Titus, c.82AD, honoring his victories etc., but especially the Sacking of Jerusalem|
|Detail: Titus' Roman guys making off with the Jewish menorah, among other things|
