The site offered a defensive fort by excellence.
The small temple which overhangs the site is that of Juno Moneta
who was at the origin of the Roman currency. On the right side of the temple of Juno stood a small temple called
Temple of Honour and Virtue
(two deities often joined on the coins), and at last the Obelisk of Isis
Lower, close to the Tabularium stood the " small temple of Concord
which was consecrated in 221 by the pretor L. Manlius after the appeasement of a military sedition. The small depression between the two peaks of Arx and Capitolium is called Asylum.
