File:Cyark pompeii reconstruction1.jpg


English: Artist's illustrated reconstruction of how the Temple of Jupiter at Pompeii may have looked before Mt. Vesuvius erupted. The temple dates back to the second century BC. When Pompeii became a Roman colony in 80 BC, the temple was transformed into a Capitolium dedicated to the Capitoline Triad of Apollo, Juno, and Minerva. Placed upon a high podium, approximately ten feet tall, its axis formed the formal axis of and focal point of the Forum; it had two series of double columns dividing it longitudinally, typifying a Greek influenced Roman temple, and its back wall was veneered in marble.

Having just visited Pompeii, I believe this is actually the temple of Apolla???
