The ruins of the Temple of Vespasian and Titus was a popular subject of sculptors and their clientele who embarked on the Grand Tour. Begun by Titus in 79 after the death of his father, Vespasian, it was completed under Domitian, circa 87. This temple was designed in the Corinthian style and featured a portico with six columns.
