Temple of Juno Lucina
The Temple of Juno Lucina. This temple was built in 375 BC in a small wood that had been previously consecrated to the goddess. The annual festival of Martonalia was celebrated in the temple and Servius Tullius ordered gifts (usually a coin) for new born children be placed in the treasury of the temple. The title of Lucina was given to Juno because of her association with childbirth and the lives of women.
The verso of this leaf contains text in three languages with page titles in Italian: Tempio di Giunone Lucina.
