Tempio di Minerva Medica, Rome

2.9
#295 of 523 in Historic Sites in Rome
The temple of Minerva Medica (akin to the temple of Apollo Medicus) was a temple in ancient Rome, built on the Esquiline Hill in the Republican era, though no remains of it have been found. Since the 17th century, it has been wrongly identified with the ruins of a nymphaeum on a nearby site, on account of the erroneous impression that the Athena Giustiniani had been found in its ruins.
Its position in the regionary catalogue, between the campus Viminalis and the temple of Isis Patricia, points to a site in the northern part of Region V. But hundreds of votive offerings, including one in which the temple is attested, were discovered in the Via Curva (the modern Via Carlo Botta), just west of the Via Merulana, and this may be the better location. Some tuff walls, resembling ritual trenches known as favissae were also found there.

  • Very cool ancient building that no one else is viewing. A shame one still can’t get up inside the ol’ girl. Still closed
  • In fact it is not a temple but a nymphaeum, a building dedicated to the nymphs and connected to the water supply, that was created in the 4th century. Now in the neighborhood of termini, the trams nearly running through this building, the trains on the other side, it looks really strange...
