Temple of the imperial cult

He Spanish city of Córdoba has the remains of a Roman temple, which was discovered in the 1950s during the expansion of City Hall.[1] It is located in the angle formed by the streets Claudio Marcelo and Capitulares. It was not the only temple that had the city, but it was possibly the most important of all, and the only known by archaeological excavation. Is a Pseudoperipterus, hexastyle and of Corinthian order temple of 32 meters long and 16 wide. Its construction began during the reign of Emperor Claudius (41-54 AD) and ended some forty years later, during the reign of Emperor Domitian (81-96 CE). [2] Presumably it was dedicated to the imperial cult. Underwent some changes in the 2nd century, reforms that coincide with the relocation of the colonial forum. In the area had already been found architectural elements, such as drums of columns, capitals, etc. all in marble, so the area was known as los marmolejos. This area of Córdoba could become between the 1st century and the 2nd century, as the provincial forum of the Colonia Patricia, title that received the city during the Roman rule.
