Templum Herculis


Templum Herculis

A third temple in this immediate neighborhood outside the porta Collina was that of Hercules, which was built before the second Punic war, as Hannibal is said to have approached the city ad portam Collinam usque ad Herculis templum. There are, however, no indications as to its exact distance from the gate. (Platner)
