The Forum Boarium is home to two small temples which are among the best preserved religious structures from Rome’s republican era (between 509 and 44BC). The smaller, round building is the Temple of Hercules,

built at the end of the 2nd century BC by a greek architect, Hermodorus of Salamis.

The shape totally fascinates me. Someday I’ll visit.   To try and experience the space I turned to my simulator on Reactiongrid, found the dimensions on wikipedia and played around recreating it using an earthship construction. It doesn’t feel just right as the avatar (Pausanius) is about 7 feet tall.
