  Arch of Titus
by Jmill42
 
 

The Arch of Titus was built in 81 AD, and commemorates the conquest of Jerusalem by some guy named Titus 11 years earlier.
It is famous for its engraved frieze showing Roman soldiers carrying a Jewish "Menorah" (seven branches chandelier) as a war trophy. Also on top is an engraving with the fanous SPQR.

"The Senate and People of Rome."
