Temple of Augustus
Once upon a time, the goddess Roma protected the Roman state from various troubles, which motivated the Romans to build a temple in her honour and in honour of the emperor Augustus on the Forum. Although the temple was almost entirely destroyed during the devastation of World War Two, it still proudly stands as a reminder of the importance and power of these historical figures for the entire Roman Empire and its provinces.
