Regio VII

Temple of Jupiter (Capitolium)


The Capitolium rises in the middle of the north side of the Forum, with Mount Vesuvius as a background. It was the  colony's major temple. Consecrated to the Capitoline Triad, composed of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, the edifice stands on a high base equipped with repositories where the city's treasure was probably kept. The façade was covered with white stucco, imitating marble. At the sides of the temple a monumental scenario of arches closed the square of the Forum.
