Temple of Isis

Interesting
This small temple bears witness to the popularity of the Egyptian goddess Isis, following the development of trade and contacts with the East and Egypt. Placed on a podium in the centre of an arcaded courtyard, the temple is completed by a purgatorium, a place for purification where the waters drawn from the Nile are guarded. The temple decoration can be seen in the Archaeological museum of Naples.
