Nero’nun yangın arazisine yaptırdığı Altın Sarayı yıktırıp, yerine Kolezyumun inşaatını başlattı.

I have read that they also took 5,000 Jews back to Rome as slaves to work on the Colosseum.

My vespasian coin set in a ring . I had a Titus coin with a palm tree and a weeping person on the rear which was to celebrate the victory in Judea, but alas it was stolen
