Constructed in the mid-3rd century BC, Temple A, associated with Juturna, the Roman goddess of fountains and wells, reflects the Hellenistic influence. This deity, linked to water sources, held significance in the Roman pantheon, embodying themes of vitality and purity.

Temple B - Temple of Fortuna Huiusce Diei

Dating to the 2nd century BC, Temple B's circular design likely honors Fortuna Huiusce Diei, celebrating Rome's victory over the Cimbri. Fortuna, the goddess of fortune, played a crucial role in Roman life, symbolizing luck, fate, and the unpredictability of events.

Temple C - Temple of Feronia

The oldest among the four, Temple C, from the 4th to 3rd century BC, venerates Feronia, an ancient Italian goddess associated with fertility and abundance. The temple's location on the primitive countryside level aligns with the agricultural aspects of Feronia's worship.

Temple D - Temple of the Lares Permarini

Dating back to the 2nd century BC, Temple D is the largest and was dedicated to spirits like the Lares Permarini and the Nymphs. The Lares were household deities, and the Nymphs represented natural forces. This temple symbolized protection and connection to the divine.

Curia of Pompey - Site of Caesar's assassination

Behind temples B and C stands the Curia of Pompey, where the Roman Senate convened. In 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated here, a critical event during the late Roman Republic. The political climate, marked by figures like Caesar and the power dynamics of the time, contributed to the historical significance of this site.
