Arch of Titus
Interior of the Arch of Titus
The inside of the arch has relief (raised) carvings showing the victory parade when Titus got back to Rome.
Here's a closeup of the carvings:
You can see the Roman soldiers carrying a huge menorah (candlestick) which they had taken from the Jews. They are about to go under a triumphal arch.
On the other side, the Emperor Titus (whose head is missing now) rides in a chariot drawn by four horses.
