  the market with its stalls
by Elisabcn

Next to the Forum there is a small market or Agora. You still can see the rectangular stalls. But the temple of Mercury with 8 columns forming a nice circular design is more interesting. It?s a logical position for this temple because Mercury was the god protector of the trade.
