Salvete,

I was wondering if anyone knows if there are depictions in Roman art om a military triumph parade.

Is it known how the spoils of war were transported? On a wagon, carried on a platform?

Valete,
The only depiction I know of by hand is the triumph of Titus after the sack of Jeruzalem. Here they carry the spoils on platforms...

Does anyone know of other methods?
Does Mary Beard's new(er) book The Roman Triumph have anything?
Not in the realm of illustration but did Josephus describe Titus' triumph?
