A view of the image of one of the seven–branched candlesticks (menorah) from the Jerusalem Temple.  Note the figures on its base!  This is one of the earliest representations of a menorah in existence!

Also visible is a rectangular placard on a pole.  This was probably painted with an inscription naming either cities or peoples conquered.

This booty was deposited in Vespasian’s “Temple of Peace!”
