The Temple of Portunus in Rome, Italy, the main temple dedicated to the god Portunus in the city. It is in the Ionic order and is still more familiar by its erroneous designation, the Temple of Fortuna Virilis ("manly fortune") given it by antiquaries. Located in the ancient Forum Boarium by the Tiber, during Antiquity the site overlooked the Port Tiberinus at a sharp bend in the river. Portunus watched over cattle-barges as they entered the city from Ostia.

Dating from the first century BC, the rectangular building consists of a tetrastyle portico and cella, raised on high podium. Like the Maison Carrée in Nîmes, it has a pronaos portico of four Ionic columns across and two columns deep. The columns of the portico are free-standing, while the five columns on the long sides and the four columns at the rear are engaged along the walls of the cella. This form is sometimes called pseudoperipteral, as distinct from a true peripteral temple like the Parthenon entirely surrounded by free-standing columns.

The Temple of Hercules Victor is very original.

It's rare that temples of this style remain still standing.

The temple was originally built in gratitude for victory at the Battle of Lake Regillus (495 BC). Castor and Pollux (Greek Polydeuces) were the Dioscuri, the "twins" of Gemini, the twin sons of Zeus (Jupiter) and Leda.

Glanum (Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Provence) :



Glanon, Greek city dedicated to a god quack, being Glanum, capital of a civitas of the Roman Empire.
It knew its peak at the time of the first Roman emperor Auguste.
Its development leaned on the protection of the reliefs of Alpilles, the presence of a sacred spring and the neighborhood of the Via Domitia.
The period of prosperity of the city stops with its sacking by the Barbarians plundered it; the town was then given up, its stones used to build the nearby city of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Tropaeum Alpium (La Turbie, Provence) :

The Trophy was built c. 6 BC in honor of the emperor Augustus to celebrate his definitive victory over the 45 ancient tribes who populated the Alps.
Between the 12th and 15th centuries, the trophy becomes fortress and houses are connected with the outer wall.
In 1705, when the war between France and Savoy started again, King Louis XIV ordered the destruction of all the fortresses of the region, and so partially blew up it. The trophy becomes then a quarry, and its stones are among others of use to the construction of the church St Michel of the old village.

There is also a Roman quarry near the trophy :

So many towers for such a small town. Is it near the Danube?

It's some 70 km from the Danube. It was fortified as emperor Galerius planned to retire there.

Quote:
Systematic archaeological excavations conducted since 1953 revealed that the site was, in fact, an Imperial palace. It was conceived and built by one of the Tetrarchs, Emperor Galerius, the adopted son and son-in-law of the great Emperor Diocletian. Galerius started construction in 298 (after a victory over the Persians that brought him admiration and glory) to mark the place of his birth. The name Felix Romuliana was given in memory of his mother Romula, who was also a priestess of a pagan cult. The complex of temples and palaces served three main purposes - a place of worship of his mother’s divine personality, a monument to his deeds as emperor, and a luxurious villa for Galerius. Romuliana survived until it was plundered by the Huns in the mid 5th century

Bet She'an National Park
This national park is located just south of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. This is looking down the main street Palladium in the ancient Roman city of Bet She'an.Teh covered portico opens onto a row of shops whose facade was faced with marble during the 4th century. These are the original mosaic floors.
