Pure Vandalism

On this day the 2nd of June 455, Rome was sacked for the third time. (You think they'd be ready for it, right?)

Vandalism Tool

Gaiseric, the Vandal King, attacked Rome as retribution for his son's broken marriage with the emperor’s daughter. He was begged to not raze the city, and to his credit, he didn't. He did, however, take all the bronze from a temple roof and looted vast amounts of treasure.

Where the previous Visigoths spent only three days, Gaiseric spent fourteen. That's probably why we call it Vandalism eh?.
