The scene of the work, inspired of the Life of Caésars by Suétonius, represents Titus and Vespasian in laurels and crowned by the Victory over Judaea, incarnated by the captive carried out by the horses, and preceded by the candlestick in seven branches brought back from the Jerusalem temple.

This panel belonged to the decoration ordered in 1537 by Federico Gonzague, duke of Mantoue, for the cabinet of Caésars of the apartment of Troy. The unit included eleven portraits of Roman emperors, painted by Titien, and eleven stories illustrating the life of the emperors, painted by Giulio Romano. Other elements of the decoration, dismantled in 1627, acquired by Charles Ier of England, are preserved today at Hampton Court.
