    The Triumph of Titus and Vespasian for their victory in the Jewish War was perhaps the formative event of the Flavian dynasty. Father and son were both anxious to unite the Roman people under their rule after the traumas of the Year of the Four Emperors (AD 68-69), and placed maximum emphasis on what could be viewed by some detractors as a minor victory in a desert backwater. Moreover, Rome had not seen a proper Triumph for nearly 30 years, in the reign of Claudius. A detailed description of the procession can be found in Josephus' "Wars of the Jews," book VII, chapter V.
