Underwood&Underwood The Colosseum—a mighty monument to Heathen brutality and Christian courage—was begun A. D. 72 by Emperor Vespasian and finished by his son, Titus, some years later. After the destruction of Jerusalem, captive Jews brought from Palestine— 12,000 in number—were employed in the work of construction. The Colosseum was used for gladiatorial combats and naval battles, the. arena being so constructed that it could be flooded with water.
