The temple remains visible on the Via delle Botteghe Oscure were discovered during the 1930s CE urban renewal project. The two columns were re-erected in the 1950s CE on the temple podium. The column drums are travertine, faced with stucco to imitate marble column drums. A fragment from the marble Forma Urbis plan indicates that the temple was 40 X 27 meters. The temple was located in a porticoed piazza that has been identified with the Porticus Minucia (110 BCE), rebuilt after the fire of 80 CE, which was used for grain distribution. The temple may have been the Temple of the Nymphs; another candidate is the Temple of the Lares Permarini.
