Tempio di Antonino e Faustina

This is the Tempio di Antonino e Faustina (Temple of Emperor Antoninus Pius and Faustina). If you watch closely, you can see marks at the top of the pillars. These were applied during the medieval times in order to adumbrate the pillars with ropes (which apparently did not work). In the 11th century the temple was renamed to Chiesa di San Lorenzo in Miranda, so don't be confused to see two names for this building.
