Digital Reconstruction of the Arch of Titus

I saw this shared on Facebook as well. It's a little misleading, I think!

"Using technology, an international team of scholars has digitally restored a panel from the Arch of Titus to its original color"

But the colours on this reconstruction are entirely speculative, and there is no way of determining their accuracy. 'Technology' notwithstanding, this is no more than imaginative colouring-in.

Aside from traces of yellow on the menorah, there is no paint residue on the Arch - just as there is none on Trajan's Column (despite some recent reports... [Image: wink.png] )
