Description:

It is located along the east side of the Civil Forum of Pompeii, between the Sanctuary of public Lares and the building of Eumachia. A small temple on a podium is at the end of an open sacred area, in front of a marble altar. The precinct wall has a door on the forum portico that leads to a sort of vestibule and, in turn, to the temple. The inner face of the wall and the exterior of the temple are punctuated by pilasters surrounding a series of panels, these surmounted by triangular and arched pediments. A scene of sacrifice on the front of the altar, along with the representations of the civic crown and of the laurel on one side, led to the attribution of the sanctuary to the imperial cult. Today the building is most known with the name 'Aedes Genii Augusti'.
