11. An Aureus, minted under Emperor Titus, provided with the inscription IMP. TITVS CAES. VESPASIAN AVG. PM (Emperor Titus Ceasar Vespasian Augustus Pontifex Maximus). From his father Titus obtained the supreme command for the Judea legions in 69. One year later Titus conquered Jerusalem, destroyed the temple and brought the temple treasure to Rome. The Arch of Titus was built in his honour. In the year 79 Titus became Emperor. In the same year Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In the year 80 he completed the construction of the Colosseum. Its elaborate dedication, which among other things included mock naval battles in the fl ooded amphitheatre, lasted 100 days. Titus died shortly afterwards.
