  The Arch of Titus
by Jenniflower
 
 

When you leave the Via Appia (Sacred Way) cobbled walkway, you pass the Arch of Titus to go into the Roman Forums.

A stunning arch, it has quite a history and tells a story (as does so much in Rome!).

Built in 81AD, it symolises victory over Jerusalem.

The inscription on it says SENATVS POPVLVSQVE ROMANVS DIVO TITO DIVI VESPASIANI F. VESPASIANO AVGVSTO in Latin, which translates to The Senate and People of Rome (dedicate this arch) to the divine Titus Vespasian Augustus, son of the divine Vespasian, in English.
