Roman Ruins, Autun: One of the two remaining walls of cella
The other wall is behind, perpendicular, forming the corner.
Outside the city, two walls of the "Temple of Janus" (2nd century AD) stand 24 m high. It was a temple of Romano-Celtic type, having a square central cella of petit appareil (a facing of courses of small squared blocks of stone) with three windows on each side and a surrounding ambulatory. Aerial photography in 1976 detected adjacent buildings of the rural sanctuary, including a theatre.
