Description/NotesCelebrates Titus and his father Emperor Vespasian's victory over the Jews, particularly the sack of Jerusalem in 70 CE. The Jewish Wars actually lasted from 66 CE to the fall of Masada in 73 CE. Titus' and Vespasian's triumphal celebration occurred in Rome in 71 CE. Panels relate to the Jewish wars, the most famous being the panel showing the spoils of war with objects taken from the Temple in Jerusalem. The Arch was incorporated into a medieval wall, which destroyed parts of the sculptural program. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arch_of_Titus
