Colosseum



The cross on the other side may suggest that many christians were killed here. This was not the case. When emperor Nero ordered the christians to be rounded up ( because he accused them of having started the great fire of Rome). the Amphitheatrum Flavium, as the Colosseum was called first, yet had to be built. Nero had "his" christians burnt at the Circus Maximus.
