This image depicts the site of the Temple of Saturn, now the Church of St. Adrian at the foot of the Capitoline Hill. The church was mentioned in 1816 by James Hakewell as being small, but built on the site of an ancient temple of Saturn. He mentions that some parts of the walls of the temple can still be distinguished. He goes on to say that the church had been in existence as early as 600 AD and it had been rebuilt in the 17th century by the General of the Order of Mercy.
