A model of the Temple of Divus Vespasianus (the so-called Temple of Jupiter Tonans), Rome, cork
Museum number: MR7
The corner of the Temple of Vespasian, just like the three columns of the Temple of the Dioscuri, was a landmark of the Forum Romanum. Here, the model shows the Temple before it was excavated. The Temple was famous not so much because of its architecture but because its entablature was decorated with sculptural reliefs which showed Roman cult implements used in religious ceremonies.
