Temple of Juno
Marcus Furius Camillus, c.435-365 BCE
The image depicts the Temple of Juno on the Aventine. Juno Regina was an Etruscan goddess who was evoked ritually by the Roman general Lucius Furius Camillus to transfer her protection to Rome. After his victory at Veii, Camillus built the temple and dedicated it in 392 BCE, solemnly installing there Juno's cult statue from Veii. Though the temple no longer exists, there are two dedication inscriptions found near the Church of Saint Sabena.
On the verso of the leaf is text in three languages with page titles in Italian: Tempio di Giunone Regina.
