In the middle of the picture stands the temple of Vesta
, called as well the round temple,
where the sacred fire was kept alight. This function was under the responsibility
of the vestals, whose house
can be seen on the left. This vast house was built on two levels.
In the centre of the atrium, a basin and a garden could be found. Slightly on the right,
you see the temple of Cæsar
, the roof of which is in orange color.
Near this temple took place the cremation of the assassinated Cæsar’s body.
Between the temple of Cæsar and the temple of Vesta, the contemporaries had
to go under the Arch of Augustus
. Just behind the temple of Cæsar was the Regia
At last, in the centre of the picture, the temple of Castor and Pollux (the Dioscuri).
