Licensed under PD

The Colosseum in Rome had seating for 50,000 spectators. Most of the stones used for construction of the building were taken by citizens of Rome in the Middle Ages for construction of other buildings in the city.

The upper level of the Colosseum had supports for 240 masts that held up a canvas awning to shield spectators from sun and rain.
