The Temple of Domitian
The temple and altar served the Imperial cult and were dedicated to Emperor Domitian (A.D. 81-96); after his death and condemnation of his memory ( damnatio memoriae), however, they were dedicated to the Flavian family. The temple, with its 8 x 13 columns constructed upon a six- stepped substructure (24 x 34 m), was erected on a terrace supported by mighty buttresses. After the victory of Christianity it was torn down to its foundations and today it has almost completely disappeared.
İmparator kültüne hizmet eden tapınak ve sunak aslen imparator Domitianus'a (İ.S. 81-96) adanmış, ancak imparatorun ölümünden ve anısının lanetlenmesinden sonra (danınatıo memoriae) Flaviuslar ailesine devredilmiştir. Altı basamaklı bir altyapının (24 x 34 m) üzerinde yükselen 8 x 13'Iük sütunlu tapınak, güçlü destek yapıları ile oluşturulmuş bir teras uzerine inşa edilmiştir. Hıristiyanlığın zaferiyle bina temel taşlarına kadar sökülmüş ve günümüzde neredeyse tamamıyla yok olmuştur.
