Maison Carrée Reconstructed Inscription

Maison Carrée is one of the best preserved Roman temples and one of the most wondrous sites in the history-rich city of Nîmes in Southern France. If you look on the wall near the temple, you’ll see a long-forgotten piece of its past.

The temple was erected during the reign of Augustus and was dedicated to Gaius Caesar and his younger brother, Lucius Caesar. They were the sons of Agrippa and the adopted grandsons of Augustus, who raised them himself.
