The Arch of Titus
The Arch of Titus was erected after the Emperor's death in 81 AD to celebrate his victory over the judeans and the conquest of Jursalem. Episodes of his triumpth are represented in the two relieves inside the archway. One shows Titus advancing in his chariot preceded by the lictors. The other represents the scene in which Roman soldiers bring back to Rome the sacred objects of the Jewish religion from the Temple in Jerusalem as spoils of war. These were the Silver Trumpet and the Seven Branched Candlestick. This is the most ancient existing representation of the famous Menorah.
