The eight colums are what remains of the Temple of Saturn. It represents the oldest surviving structure in the Roman Forum, having been established between 501 and 498 BC. To the right, the three Corinthian columns are the remains of the Temple of Vespasian and Titus. It is located at the western end of the Roman Forum between the Temple of Concordia and the Temple of Saturn. It is dedicated to the deified Vespasian and his son, the deified Titus. It was begun by Titus in 79 A.D. after Vespasian’s death and Titus’s succession. Titus’ brother, Domitian, completed and dedicated the temple to Titus and Vespasian in approximately 87 A.D.
