Columns of the Fora

The ruins of the Fora of Rome, the original Forum Romanum and the later Imperial Fora contain a few evocative remnants of their colonnades and porticoes in the form of standing columns, rising from below contemporary street level in the case of the Forum of Augustus (above), and standing on a high podium in the case of the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina which saw later use as the church of San Lorenzo in Miranda.
