The Jerash Temple of Artemis is a roman temple in Jerash, Jordan. Ruins of the temple are still one of the most remarkable monuments left of the ancient city of Gerasa.

Artemis was the patron goddess of the city and was highly esteemed by the Hellenistic population of Gerasa, while Semitic part of the population preferred Zeus. Construction of the temple was finished in CE 150, during the reign of roman emperor Antoninus Pius. The temple was built on one of the highest points and dominated the whole city. The building had a hexastyle portico with 12 columns of which 11 are still standing. Corinthian capitals decorating the columns are very well preserved. The temple walls had three entrances decorated with three Corinthian pilasters.

Zadar, Roman forum Croatia

The Roman Forum - the largest on this side of the Adriatic - was founded by the first Emperor Augustus, as documented on two 3rd Century stone inscriptions on the site. A raised area on the west side was the site of a temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. The Forum also comprised a basilica and rooms for council chambers and citizens assemblies. Underneath was a colonnade where shops and workshops once stood.
