Ancient Entertainment

The Flavian Amphitheater, better known as the Colosseum, stands in the heart of ancient Rome. Built by the emperors Vespasian and Titus between 70-80 AD, the amphitheater is 157 ft high. Only a small portion of the original outer wall remains. Ancient sources state that over 9,000 wild animals were killed during the inaugural games in the Colosseum. The venue held between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators depending on its configuration at the time

Nothing says power, superiority, importance, command like size. The bigger, the better when it comes to religion, government, or a combination of the two.  Ancient Egypt was one of the first civilizations to demonstration the power represented in size.
