Arch from Titus

From the 1st century AD honorific arch, located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. Constructed in AD 82, by the Roman Emperor Domitian after the death of his older brother Titus – to commemorate Titus’ victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The Arch of Titus has provided the general model for many of the triumphal arches erected since the 16th century – perhaps most famously it is the inspiration for the 1806 Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France, completed in 1836.
