Museo Nazionale Romano
The emperor Vespasian, who reigned from 69 to 79, founded the Flavian dynasty, which ruled the Roman Empire for 27 years.
Amongst his many achievements, the emperor Vespasian commissioned the building of the largest amphitheatre in the world, which, centuries later, came to be known as the Colosseum. At the time it was built, it was called the Amphiteatrum Flavium.
