L'intervento di scavo presso lo spigolo nord-orientale del Tempio di Bellona
In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 112, 2012
Some tests carried out during the excavation allowed us to detect a masonry structure, in opus reticulatum, which was part of a very long east-west oriented corridor, under the pavement between the temple of Apollo and the porticus at its back, up to the end of the temple of Bellona. Moreover, a small part of the concrete-foundation of the temple emerged, together with a canal, preserved for a short length, originally deputed to intercept and transport the rainfall. On the basis of the items discovered inside, the canal seems to have been fallen into disuse between the middle of the 5th and the first half of the 8th century AD. So, it can be argued that the area was no more in use in that period, or was in a progressive degradation.
