The Temple Of Apollo It was built in 432 1 BC during a plague and for this reason was dedicated to Apollo Medicus. In the Augustan era a radical reconstruction was promoted by Gaius Sosius ( was a Roman General and Politician) , former lieutenant of Julius Caesar, from whom the temple got its final denomination “SOSIANUS” . The temple had six Carrara marble columns of the front side while the flanks and the rear façade were decorated by semi-columns made with travertine stone. The pediment of the building was ornamented with an Amazonomachy “a scene depicting the battle between the Greeks Ann the Amazons”, while the temple’s inner chamber “cella” was lavishly decorated with colored marbles. The three standing columns that one can see today were raised in 1940 on background of the newly built road axis connecting the center of Rome to the Via Ostiense and the sea. In this area where were located The Foro Holitorium (vegetable seller’s market)
Great stop. Teatro di Marcello area is wonderful.
