often called ARCUS VESPASIANI ET TITI, erected in 80/81 A.D. by the senate in honour of the emperor Titus, and to commemorate the capture of Jerusalem. We have no information about this arch, except what is contained in the inscription (CIL vi. 944) preserved in the Einsiedeln Itinerary and reported to have been found in the circus Maximus. As a fragment (No. 38) of the Marble Plan indicates an arch at the east end of the circus, it is supposed that this arch replaced the porta Pompae, as the entrance at this point of the circus was regularly called.
