Sacred Area of Largo Argentina

Area Sacra.JPG

Temple A - perhaps of Giuturna, divinity of sources, transformed in the 9th century into the church of S. Nicola de 'Calcario

Temple B - perhaps of Fortuna Huiusce Fortuna of the present day - circular building on a podium

Temple C - perhaps of Feronia, patron deity of the woods - the oldest of the four.

Temple D - perhaps of the Lares Permarini, protectors of navigation.

Large area intended for worship in Roman times. Following the demolitions carried out in the 1920s, the remains of the Curia of Pompey, the place where Caesar was killed, and of four republican temples have come to light

(IV - I century BC)
