Roman Colosseum.

Roman Colosseum (18) 1'Colosseum' the Roman amphitheatre is one of the greatest works of Roman architecture & engineering, & is located on the marshy land between the Esquiline & Caelian Hills. Construction for this is stated to be started between 70 & 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian & was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign.
Originally capable of seating 50,000 spectators, it had approximately eighty entrances that helped in easy movement of crowd, as they could arrive & leave easily & quickly. It was used for gladiatorial contests & public spectacles. The Colosseum remained in use for nearly 500 years & what we see today are the remains of the greatest amphitheatre of the antiquity.
