"Albumen print. Photograph by Robert Macpherson. Carved stone detail showing the carrying away of spoils from the Sack of Jerusalem. A menorah, the seven-branched candelabrum used by Jews in religious rites, is visible. The arch was built to commemorate the future Roman emperor Titus Flavius Vespasianus (39-81 AD/CE), who was responsible for the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD/CE. The city and temple were completely destroyed."
