Three white marble columns topped by a frieze from the Temple of Apollo Sosianus stand to this day next to the Theatre of Marcellus. A temple dedicated to Apollo existed on the site since the 5th century BC, though the surviving columns are from the reconstruction work that occurred four centuries later (1st century BC). These standing columns were re-erected only in 1940 near the original location of the temple. They had been discovered by accident in the '30s, during the demolition of buildings on the site in a project aimed at exposing the original walls of the adjacent Theatre of Marcellus.
