Model of the Temple of Hercules

ACOR, Amman, Jordan

Larger than any classical temple in Rome, the Temple of Hercules (front view, rear view) is situated on the citadel of Amman. This model, created by the excavator, is currently on view in the American Center of Oriental Research. Note the missing columns behind the temple porch. Because of this and other evidence, the excavator believes that the temple was unfinished.
