Titus was Emperor of Rome from AD 79 to 81, the elder son of Vespasian he was brought up at court along with Britannicus, Claudius’ son. He had considerable physical and intellectual gifts, especially in music and singing and at one stage some viewed him as potentially a second Nero. When he died on 13th September 81 AD, he was remembered with affection as the ‘delight and darling of the human race’ (Suetonius Tit’ 1).
