The Colosseum, also known as the Coliseum, is the most well-known of Rome’s Classical structures, even 2,000 years after it was built, and despite decades of pillaging for building materials. Emperor Titus celebrated the opening of the Colosseum with a hundred days of gladiatorial combat. The games were traditionally visited by Emperors. The emperor Commodus is said to have performed hundreds of times in the arena. The Colosseum also featured dramas, reenactments, and even public executions in addition to the games.
