Here she speaks on the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on the Capitoline Hill. This was the most important temple in the empire. While the building is long since destroyed we have a good idea of what it looked like, thanks to the attention of Roman writers.

A fascinating discussion, much recommended!
