A model of the Temple of Isis.  The main structure was approached by a staircase on the east up to a columned exterior portico.  Inside the temple, there were statues of Isis and Osiris.  There were wall paintings and murals of Egyptian landscapes.

The current structure was built after the earthquake of A.D. 62 and thus was only 17 years old when Pompeii was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. The well-preserved temple was one of the first discoveries at Pompeii in 1764!
