VIII.7.32 Pompeii Foro Triangolare - Thólos con pozzo profondo.

Triangular Forum - Thólos with deep well.

Sponsored by Numerius Trebius.

 

VIII.7.32 Pompeii Triangular Forum. September 2005. Tholos, looking south-east.
According to De Caro, in the space in front of the temple an ancient well cut into the lava was made monumental with a very elegant circular aedicula whose eight Doric columns probably supported a conical roof. The architrave bore an Oscan inscription: 

NI(UMSIS) TREBIIS TR(EBIEIS), MED(DISS) TUV(TIKS) AAMANAFFED, 

See De Caro S., in Dobbins, J. J. and Foss, P. W., 2008. The World of Pompeii. Oxford: Routledge, p. 78.

According to Cooley this translates as

Numerius Trebius, son of Trebius, chief magistrate, saw to this being built.
