Romans, though you’re guiltless, you’ll still expiate
your fathers’ sins, till you’ve restored the temples,
and the tumbling shrines of all the gods,
and their images, soiled with black smoke.
~Horace, Odes, III, 6; A. S. Kline trans.

Progress report: Temple of Jupiter

We recently reported here (Sarmatian Days) that a templum (sacred space) has been established in Sarmatia (Ukraine) for building an aedes (temple building) to Jupiter. Work is moving ahead rapidly. Here we see M. Octavius Corvus and another cultor at work on the building's foundation, which follows the line of the templum that was created earlier by augur publicus M. Lucretius Agricola and pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus.

The building of this temple is in fulfillment of a votum sworn by T. Iunius Brutus, Ap. Furius Lupus and M. Octavius Corvus and it is assisted by the entire community of Romans in Municipium Poltava. More photos are here.
