In A.D. 80, under Titus’s rule, the Colosseum was officially opened. This was known as a gift to the Roman citizens. In this amphitheater many would gather to watch reenactments, wild animal fights, and watch their criminals get brutally killed. This known source of entertainment had a huge impact on the Roman empire.
Some good effects the Colosseum may have had on the Roman empire would’ve been that such a large arena needed many people, which provided many jobs for the citizens. It also helped with the downfall of the empire, by how many industries relied on the money the games brought and the removal of the importance of the Flavian Amphitheatre.
