The outer wall was made up largely of arches In three tiers, one above the other, and extriid- Ing side by side entirely around the building' The arches on the ground level were numbered, and through them the Roman populace poured on the way to the spectadee. The choice teats were those closest to the areng ITom them one conld lean over to tease the tawny lions who could leap almost, but never quite, to the top of tbe protecting wall ; and from tbem one conld almost feri the air of swishing swords hack ing at the beads of tbe gladiators. In these prefenied posidont sat the em peror en a allghtly raised dals,'''and briow and to the sides, senators, lead ing patricians and tbe Vestal virgins, the young ,pr leate sses of the Temple of Vesta,, who' were so cafeftilly nuf- ttwed and guarded by Rome. Many a time tbe thumbs of/lbese young women gave tbe finar signal which determined tbe deato <>^ e wounded gladiator. / Next above the aenatora sat patri cians and othec dtlsens in a dwindling scale of importance.

Grim and gbastiy as the pnrpose of the Flavian amphitheater was.it was in no sense crude.

Also tbe entire apace could be flooded for naval comhsta. r Fortreea In the Middle Ageg For nearly four and a half centuries the Flavian amphitheater played Its bloody role In Roman affaira. It was not without mishaps that might have put it in ruina much aoooer had not Rmne atill been a going clvlllzatloa. It wda twice atmek by lightning to the SecMid century and twice injured by earthquakes in the Third ; but eadi time It was restored, and toe long ser ies of deaths in lu arena grew even greater. „ After Rdme's fall. In tbe tnrbnient Middle ages, tbe old amphitheater, then the Coloaaeam, was nsto as a fortress by one of the family factlona of Rome the Frangipania. In these times, toa It was robbed of tbe iron clamps of tbe outer wall which held the atone blacks together. Tbe outer walla that ataaid today are deeply pitted becauae of these depredations. In 1S48 an euatbquake riiook down a large part of the weakened outer atnMtura There waa no poorer able or toterested to restore it, and tbe ruin at the build ing then definitely set In.
