Regio VIII

Doric Temple


It was built in the VI century B.C., when Pompeii, even though it wasn’t a Greek polis, was submitted to the maritime hegemony and the influence of Cumę and Neįpolis.


In fact, the foundations of the area of the temple underline important rests of the architectonic terracotta decoration of the upper parts of the building. To the cult of Hercules, which was devoted the temple, it was also associated the one of Minerva. The base measures 28 x 21 m., and the traces of varied remaking suffered in the Samnite period are clearly showed; it became, in Roman period, a “sacello”. In the temple there was an exedra with sun-dial, put by the same mayors that erected the one in the Temple of Apollo.
