Pompeii Amphitheatre

Description
The amphitheatre in Pompeii was built in around 80BC and is the oldest Roman amphitheatre in existence, pre-dating the Colosseum in Rome. In 59AD there was a fight in the Amphitheatre between the Pompeians and visiting Nocerians resulting in many deaths. The Senate banned future contests in the amphitheatre for 10 years. Modelled by Peter Olsen, Brighton-le-Sands, Sydney, Australia. #amphitheater #amphitheatre #arena #colosseum #italy #peter_olsen #pompeii #ruins
