The Colosseum's original Latin name was Amphittheater Flavium, often anglicized as Flavian Amphittheater. Construction of the Colosseum began unde the rule of Emporer Vespasian in around 70-72 AD it was inaugurated by Titus in 80 A.D. and then completed by Domitian. Located on the marshy land between the Esquiline and Caelian Hills, it was the first permanent amphitheater to be built in Rome. its monumental size and grandeur, as well as its practical and efficient organization for producing spectacles and controlling the large crowds make it one of the greatest architectural monuments achieved by the ancient Romans.

The Colosseum was used to host gladitorial shhows as well as a variety of other events. The shows, called munera, were always given by individuals rather than the state. They had a strong religious element but were also a demonstration of power and family prestige, and were immensley popular with the population.

Although it is now in a ruined condition due to damage caused by earthquakes and stonerobbers, the Colosseum has long been seen as an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome. Today it is one of modern Rome's most popular tourist attractions and still has close connections with the Roman Catholic Church, as each Good Friday the pope leads a torchlit "Way of the Cross" procession to the amphitheater. There is now a museum dedicated to Eros located in the upper floor of the outer wall of the building.
