The temple was built between the fourth and second century BC in the Forum. As well as a place of worship, it also had the function of city treasurer and all that remains are two Corinthian columns that support a part of the architrave. Here are inscribed the names of the commissioners of the works and the deities to whom the temple was dedicated. The temple was included in a church and its ruins were included in different private buildings and the church, dedicated to St. Salvatore. Some remains are preserved in the cloister of the nearby church of Saint Oliva.
