The Temple of Serapis
This magnificent temple comes from a cult introduced from Alexandria
by the Romans as early as the IInd century BC. This temple had been
restaured under Caligula. Built on the top of the Quirinal, two steps
away from the Baths of Constantine, it must have been visible from
anywhere in Rome. Two great porticoes framed the Temple.
On the slope of the Quirinal, a great portico was attached to the Temple of Serapis, Portico of Constantine
This bird’s eye view is showing the great complex represented by the Temple of Serapis. It was erected under the Severus.
