Pars Fori Romani Qua Respicit Arcum Titi Vespasiani Una Cum Vestigiis Seu Monumentis Templorum Hodie

A Section of the Roman Forum with the Ruins of the Arch of Titus. The image depicts how the Roman Forum would have appeared in the time of Lauro. The Roman Forum was a project begun in the reign of Augustus and continued actively throught Domitian's reign. But by 410 AD, rome was sacked by the Visigoths and plundered. The forum became an abandoned area until around the 19th century.

Vespasian was the general who in 66 AD who crushed a revolt of Jews in Palestine and looted the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The Romans brought back a huge collection of priceless artifacts and thousands of prisoners. When Nero died in 68, Vespasian returned to Rome to become emperor and the command went to his son, Titus. Titus succeeded his father as emperor in 79, but died in 81. In 82 AD, his brother Domitian built the Arch of Titus in his honor.

The recto of the leaf is blank.

    Je pensais recevoir 2 gravures identiques étant donné le titre mais je n'en ai eu qu'une seule. Le titre ne correspond apparemment pas à la description.
    Sinon j'en suis content

    Response by seller
    I am so sorry and believe there has been a misunderstanding. I wrote on September 2nd to check that you had received the Laurus and have not heard back. As such I assumed that it arrived safely.

    If the Laurus has not arrived, I will of course take this up with the transport company and issue a full refund or replacement. I will contact you via message to clarify this.

    Again I am sincerely sorry if there has been a misunderstanding. Our wish is that all our customers are always happy with their purchases.
