Temple Of Castor and Pollux

These columns were on the east side of the temple. The building was completed in 484 BC. Legend tells us that the twins, Castor and Pollux guided the Romans to victory in the battle against the Tarquins and Latins. Coming to Rome to spread the good news of victory they were seen watering their horses in the Spring of Juturnae. The stairs leading from the main concourse of the Forum on the north were once flanked by two marble equestrian statues.
