Titus Arch – Arc de Triumph

 

When the Romans defeated the Jews in 70 C.E., they built this “Titus Arch” in Rome to commemorate their victory.

The sculpture depicts the booty the Romans took when they ransacked and destroyed the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

The Roman victors named the conquered Jewish region “Palestine.”
