Who built the temple of peace?
Correspondingly, when was the Temple of Peace built?
One may also ask, who built the Roman Forum? The 1st century BCE saw a great deal of construction activity, and the form of the Forum we see today largely dates from that era. Lucius Cornelius Sulla (138-78 BCE) built a larger Curia building, home of the extended Roman Senate, and paved the Forum with white travertine.
Subsequently, one may also ask, what was the Forum Pacis and when was it constructed?
The Temple of Peace (Latin: Templum Pacis), also known as the Forum of Vespasian (Latin: Forum Vespasiani), was built in Rome in 71 AD under Emperor Vespasian in honour to Pax, the Roman goddess of peace. It faces the Velian Hill, toward the famous Colosseum, and was on the southeast side of the Argiletum.
What was the Forum of Augustus used for?
Under Augustus, the forum was used mainly for military purposes, such as ceremonious departures and returns from war. The forum also hosted ceremonies wherein young men were awarded togas to signify their coming of age for military purposes.
