19 Domitian Temple at Domitian Square in Ephesus, Turkey

You have now entered Domitian Square. There is a lot to admire here, so take your time. The plaza is named after the Temple of Domitian. Not much remains of the former two-story structure measuring 164 by 328 feet. Domitian’s authoritarian and autocratic rule (81 – 96 AD) caused hatred among the Roman senators, resulting in his assassination. When he was denounced afterwards, this temple was renamed Vespasian in honor of Domitian’s father.
