Temple of Jupiter

Recommended
In a bid to consolidate his power, Emperor Diocletian claimed to be descended from the god Jupiter. This is why, between the decumanus and the imperial apartments, the space was set aside for religious edifices. On one side was a mausoleum devoted to worshipping the emperor, while on the other were the temples of Venus and Cybele, now destroyed, and the temple of Jupiter, since transformed into St Domnius Cathedral at the end of the 9C. The sphinx and arcades outside came from Egypt.
