The Temple of Portunus, dating to the first century B.C., is a rare survivor of Roman Republican architecture and a reminder of the former magnificence of the Forum Boarium, a major commercial area along the banks of the Tiber in antiquity. It was dedicated to Portunus, a youthful god associated with water crossings and seaports. The combination of this typical Etruscan ground plan and the temple’s Greek Ionic columns is characteristic of Roman Republican period architecture and sets this structure class apart. Studied and admired since the Renaissance, this structure has been used to illustrate many treatises on classical architecture. Today it continues to be an educational resource for those interested in the Forum Boarium and the other structures and areas in Rome that once formed part of this ancient commercial center.With this frame in your home, your art history love is sure to be reflected!
