Via degli Specchi/Piazza S. Salvatore in Campo

135 BC maybe Hermodoros of Salamis (active in Rome in the II century BC) for Brutus Callaicus
Nothing is left to be seen of this temple

It was located at the west end of the Circus Flaminius corresponding precisely to the block between Via degli Specchi, the Via and the Piazza di San Salvatore in Campo to left the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà

It was a peripteral temple made out of Pentelic marble on a crepidoma with no podium and therefore in purely Greek style
The church of S. SALVATORE IN CAMPO was built on the exact area of the temple
