Templum Pacis: View showing streetcar running past the Corinthian columns of the Templum Pacis
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
Between 71 and 75 CE the splendid Templum Pacis was built on the site of the old public market to commemorate the victory in Judea by Vespasian (reigned 69-79). The temple was connected to the Imperial Fora, to which it formed an appendix on the southeast side, and was surrounded by a monumental porticoed square resembling a forum, although only at the end of the Empire was it called the Forum Pacis.
