What’s the Colosseum?

The Colosseum is a Roman (not to be confused with Greek) amphitheater built by Titus and Vespasian around 80 A.D. If you visit Rome, you’ll find a substantial part still standing. But beware, the word is also used for any Roman amphitheater. Colosseum comes from the Latin word, colosseus, which means gigantic. If you’re vacationing in Rome, you may want to accentuate The Colosseum so you’ll be directed to the correct one, although I’m sure tour guides, bus and cab drivers understand which one you are referring to.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the historic novel The Celtic Prince Available here:
