The Arch of Titus is a 1st-century honorific arch, located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. It was constructed in c. 82 AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus’ victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The Arch of Titus has provided the general model for many of the triumphal arches erected since the 16th century—perhaps most famously it is the inspiration for the 1806 Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France, completed in 1836.

The lesser-known Arch of Titus was a triple arch erected by the east end of the Circus Maximus by the Senate in 81 AD, in honour of Titus and his capture of Jerusalem in the First Jewish–Roman War. Few traces remain. The inscription (CIL 6.944), quoted by an 8th-century Swiss monk known only as the “Einsiedeln Anonymous”, makes it clear that this was Titus’ triumphal arch. Sculptural fragments of a military frieze have been attributed to the arch.
