Ancient Colosseum

When Vespasian died, in 79, the Colosseum had been completed up to the third story.

The building was finished and inaugurated by Vespasian’s son, Titus, in 80, with a great celebration. The Colosseum had some other modifications under Vespasian's younger son, Domitian. He constructed the hypogeum, a system of underground tunnels used for slaves and animals. Domitian also increased the building’s capacity by adding a gallery to the top.

The Colosseum was seriously damaged in 217, because a major fire. Most of the wooden upper levels were destroyed. It was repaired some years after and continued to be used for contests up to the 6th century.
