Construction on the Colosseum began in AD 71 during the reign of Vespasian, and dedication ceremonies were held in AD 75 after the completion of the first three stories. In AD 80, the remaining two stories were completed, and new dedication ceremonies were conducted in June, celebrated on this sestertius of Titus. Elkins, in his recent article on these pieces, argues that they were commemorative pieces distributed by Imperial munificence at games held in the Colosseum.
