The temple of Apollo, this temple has been present in Pompeii since the town was founded. But interest in the cult of Apollo begun to dwindle in Pompeii in the 5th century BC but the temple survived 300 years more before being replaced by a new one. Corinthian columns surrounded the temple with a stone altar at the front of a long flight of stairs, and the sundial was to the left side of the stairs as you can see in the picture. There is also a statue of Apollo to the right of the temple in bronze.
