Reconstruction of the Colosseum started from the command of King Vespasian in 72 M and completed by his son Titus in 80 M Colosseum established close to Nero’s enermous Palace, Domus Aurea that had been built in after the great fire in Rome in 64 M Some historians believe that construction of the Colosseum was financed by way of robbing a big temple in Jerusalem by order of King Herod in 64M.

Dio Cassius a historian said that there are about 9000 wild animals who have been killed in 100 days as a celebration of the inauguration and opening of the Colosseum. The floor of the Colosseum arena was covered by sand to prevent blood-the blood does not flow anywhere.

Colosseum at that time was the venue for a spectacular show, which is a fight between animals (venetaiones), the fight between prisoners and animals, the execution of prisoners (noxii), water fight (naumachiae) by flooding the arena, and the battles between gladiators (munera) . For hundreds of years, the estimated thousands of people and animals die in the Colosseum show.
