The First Son of a ‘Twelve Caesar’- he completed the Roman Colosseum
In 2007 a new list of the Seven Wonders of the World was created, adding the Colosseum in Rome to the list for the first time. Begun under his father, the Colosseum was completed under Titus. This landmark tells the story of the days of the gladiator and is frequented by millions of visitors annually. It is today one of the most iconic global landmarks and the grand symbol of ancient Rome.
Titus was the son of Vespasian and was the first son of a ‘Twelve Caesar’ to rule. As the second emperor of the Flavian Dynasty, Titus gained immense notoriety as a military commander serving under his father in the First Jewish-Roman War. After ruling for just two short years, Titus fell ill and died ostensibly of natural causes in 81 AD.
Reverse features roma, helmeted, seated right on two shields, holding spear before her; she-wolf standing right at her feet, head turned back, suckling Romulus and Remus, in left and right fields, two eagles flying towards her. All of which is featured above the phrasing “COS VI”, which is found on coins of Vespasian, Titus, and Commodus, meaning Consul for the 6th Time.
