Made from travertine and cement, the Colosseum was known as the Flavian Amphitheater, and it was the largest ever made. A trip to the amphitheater in antiquity was quite an event. The festivities included wild animal hunts where war prisoners were pitted against hungry lions and other animals, public executions, and of course the gladiatorial fights after lunch.
