Architectural miniature sculpture of the Ruins of Vespasian's temple.
A grand tour souvenir.
The marble ruin is located in Rome, 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 after Vespasian's death and Titus's succession.
Titus’ brother, Domitian, completed and dedicated the temple to Titus and Vespasian in approximately 87.
