Theme 1 - The Capitolium in Ostia and the Hadrianic Forum's Programme


In purpose of achieving more informations on the temple and the surrounding porticoes the reconsideration of historic sources around the excavations and descriptions of Ostia are quite promising. Besides that approach the OFP made several finds and observations during the last
campaigns, which are bringing new light into this topic.
Together with the new finds, the puzzle of the reconstruction of the temple has to be rearranged.
Beyond that are some obvious questions never asked before: likewise for the reconstruction of the buildings themselves are only little pieces of their inventory known. There is to ask about statuary display and incrustation as there are niches and plug holes still visible.
