Thursday Doors: Temple of Antoninus and Faustina

One of the sights that catches attention at the Roman Forum is the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina. It’s a well preserved edifice among the ruins that give a glimpse of ancient Rome. Its green door stands out amidst the neutral colored columns and walls.Initially dedicated to the deceased and deified Faustina by her husband Antoninus, the Temple was re-dedicated to both Faustina and Antoninus when he died. The reads “Divo Antonino et Divae Faustinae Ex S.C.” meaning, “To the divine Antoninus and to the divine Faustina by decree of the Senate.”

I am one half of a couple who loves to travel; the half who likes to write and share travel experiences. Reading about travelers' experiences inspire me more to see the world. So, I thought, perhaps in my own little way I could inspire others, too. :)
