Foro di Augusto

The 'Forum of Augustus' was a major public concourse in the city of Rome, built by Emperor Augustus. It was never officially completed.

The forum was built to house a temple dedicated to the god Mars (the god of war) and was used to house standards and various paraphernalia for battle. It was also home to over 100 statues of gods and Roman nobility. The largest and most grandiose was of course reserved for Augustus himself.
