Book Description Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1820 edition. Excerpt: . 1, -- Description of the Amphitheatre of Titus -- Gibbon. XT OSTERITY admires, and will long admire, the awful remains of the Amphitheatre of Titus, which sa well deserves the epithet of Colossal. It was a building of an elliptic figure, five hundred and sixty-four feet in length, and four hundred and sixty-seren in breadth;-- founded on four score arches; and rising with four successive orders of architecture, to the height of one hundred and forty feet. The outside of the edifice was encrusted with marble, and decorated with statues. The slopes of the vast concave, which formed the inside, were filled, and surrounded with sixty or eighty rows of seats of marble covered with cushions, and capable of receiving with ease above four score thousand spectators. Sixty-four vomitories (for by that name the doors were very aptly distinguished) poured forth the immense multitude: and the entrances, passages, and staircases, were contrived with such exquisite skill, that each person, whether of the senatorial, equestrainor the plebeian order, arrived at his destined place, without trouble or confusion. Nothing was omitted which, in any respect, could be subservient to the convenience and pleasureof the spectators. They were protected from the sun and rain by an ample canopy, occasionally drawn over their heads. The air was continually refreshed by the playing of fountains, and profusely impregnated by the grateful scent of aromatics. In the centre of the edifice, the arena, or stage, was strewed with the finest sand, and successively assumed the most differnt forms. At one moment, it seemed to rise out ofthe earth, like the garden of the Hesperides; at another, it exhibited the rugged rocks and caverns of Thrace. The subterraneous pipes.
