The Tempio di Giove (in English, Jupiter's Temple) is located on the north side of the forum between two arches. It was built in the second century B.C.. It became the main temple of the town after the conquest of Sulla and it was dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. It was damaged during the earthquake in 62 A.D. and it was under restauration in 79.
