Photographer's Note

The Capitolium ruins in Terracina historical centre are in the foreground.

Jupiter, Juno and Minerva were honoured in temples known as Capitolia, which were built on hills and other prominent areas in many cities in Italy and the provinces, particularly during the Augustan and Julio-Claudian periods. Most had a triple cella.

Terracina's temple was decorated along its front side with four columns of Tuscan-Doric style. It had a triple cella of tufa and limestone, which are only partially remained. Under them is visible the so called favissae, where the votive offerings were kept.
