Built by Domitian to celebrate the capture of Jerusalem in 70 by his brother Titus and his father Vespasian, this large single arch is the oldest triumphal arch in Rome. The reliefs inside the arch portray Titus in a chariot as well as the many spoils of the victory, including the sacred Menorah, as they were carried in the triumphal procession. The arch was built after the death of Titus and commemorates the conquest of Judea. The arch marks the end of the Via Sacra.
