Temple of Hercules Victor - Rome

The Temple of Hercules Victor was constructed sometime during the 2nd century BC and is dedicated to Hercules Olivarius, the protector of the olive trade. It is the oldest marble temple standing today in Rome and has been remarkably preserved. The temple is best described as a colonnade of 20 Corinthian-style columns arranged in a circle around an inner chamber. Inside was a statue of the god Hercules, as old as the temple itself, created by the renowned Greek sculptor Scopas the Younger.
