the Temple of Vespasian

T hree proud and elegant Corinthian columns are left of the right-hand side of the 'pronaos'. In 81 AD Domitian built the simple 'prostyle', a temple with a portico of four colums, with single-aisle-'cella' and a colonnade for each of the two long walls to honour his predecessors, his dad Vespasian and his brother Titus.
