The Temple of Roma and Augustus at Leptis Magna is a large temple (ca. 46 x 20 meters) situated on the so-called "Old Forum". It was initially erected between 8 BCE and 19 CE using limestone from Ras el-Hammam. The temple has a pseudo-peripteral temple and is oriented to the southeast. Reconstruction and restoration in the second century CE used marble instead of the original limestone.
