"Temple to Vespasian" Top 5 Page for this destination Temple of Vespasian Tip by Evenith666

Temple of Vespasian, Pompeii: 12 reviews and 18 photos

 
 

This Temple is odd as it is not dedicated to a God or Goddess, but to the Emperor Vespasian. It was comman in ancient Rome for each town to dedicate a temple to the current Emperor, and here offerings to the Emperor could be made.
The temple had still not been restored by the time of the Eruption.

Directions: About mid-way along the eastern side of the forum, between the Temple of the Lares and the Building of Eumachia.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
