Description

Architectural view of the Arch of Titus. The arch is large with both fluted and unfluted columns. The spandrels on the upper left and right of the arch contain personifications of victory as winged women. Between the spandrels is the keystone, on which there stands a female. Above that is a large Roman inscription.
