Introduzione al Foro di Augusto

The reproduction of the façade of the Temple of Mars Ultor carved in the relief of Ara Pietatis Augustae (the altar of Augustan piety) shows the figures from the pediment and the victory acroterion, one of which, a magnificent right foot in gilded bronze, found right in front of the Temple during the excavations carried out in the 1930, might be a piece from a statue of a woman.
