The Roman emperor Vespasian began construction of the Colosseum in 72 CE. His son, the emperor Titus, completed and dedicated the great Flavian Amphitheater in 80 CE. The best representations of the Colosseum appear on contemporary Roman coins. These include a Sestertius celebrating Titus' dedication in 80 CE (See "The Gladiators").
