A view looking south at the entrance into the Isis Temple Complex.  Note the reproduction of the dedicatory inscription above the doorway.


The current structures were built after the earthquake of A.D. 62 and thus were 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!
