The Colosseum, or Flavian Amphitheatre, covering six acres, is a large ellipsoid arena built in the first century CE under the Roman emperors of the Flavian dynasty: Vespasian (69-79 CE), Titus (79-81 CE) and Domitian (81-96 AD). There are four arcaded stories; the first three each have eighty arches, framed respectively by engaged Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns.
