This article is about the Roman Emperor. For other uses, see Titus.

Titus (Latin: Titus Flāvius Caesar Vespasiānus Augustus; 30 December 39 CE – 13 September 81 CE) was Roman Emperor from 79 to his death.

In 70 CE, Titus captured and sacked Jerusalem, the victory being commemorated on the Arch of Titus.[1] In 79 CE, he succeeded his father Vespasian as Emperor and ordered the construction of the Temple of Vespasian in his honor.[2] He also oversaw the completion of the Colosseum.[3][4]

Following his death, Titus was succeeded by his brother Domitian, who completed construction of the Temple of Vespasian and dedicated it to both Vespasian and Titus.[2]
