Temples of Saturn and Vespasian
Ruins of The Temples of Saturn and Vespasian
The Temple of Saturn was originally built in 501 BC for King Tarquinius Superbus. It was an early Republic Treasury for gold, silver, and archives. Saturn Cronus was the Agrarian Chief God-Titan of all Life, son of Heaven and Earth, father of Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Ceres, etc.. The current ruins are the remains of the last reconstruction of the temple in 283 AD.
The Temple of Vespasian and his sons Titus and Domitian was built 79-87 AD. The 3 Emperors comprised the Flavian Dynasty, and the temple was used to worship them as gods. Sounds like a family museum!
