Moreover, [I shall relate] how Titus marched out of Egypt
the second time; as also how, and where, and how many forces he got together;
and in what state the city was, by the means of the seditious, at his coming;
what attacks he made, and how many ramparts he cast up; of the three walls
that encompassed the city, and of their measures; of the strength of the
city, and the structure of the temple and holy house; and besides, the
measures of those edifices, and of the altar, and all accurately determined.
A description also of certain of their festivals, and seven purifications
of purity, 1
and the sacred ministrations of the priests, with the garments of the priests,
and of the high priests; and of the nature of the most holy place of the
temple; without concealing any thing, or adding any thing to the known
truth of things.
