The Arch of Titus

No arch has inspired other arch builders than this one.  There is even a replica of said in New Hampshire.  I can think of no piece of Roman architecture which symbolizes what would happen to you and your people if you foolishly decided to defy Rome – or at least that is what the Romans were trying to portray (in fact lots of people did get away with defying Rome – be it the Parthians or the various Germanic tribes or the Picts).
