Temple of the Lares Tips (2)

Temple of the City Lares

The Household Lares are the gods of the home. Most houses in ancient rome would have a shrine to these gods, and make offerings in the hope that the Lares would protect them and their home.
The Temple is thought to be unique in ancient Rome, with the small household shrine being adapted into a city-wide temple and sanctuary in the hope that it would protect the city after the devastating Earthquake of 62 AD, thus making it one of the newest buildings in the city. Unfortunately its protection couldn't stand up to the terrible natural disaster that defeated the city.
