Temple of Serapis (Macellum)
Improperly considered a temple because of the discovery during the first excavations of a statue of the Egyptian god Serapis, it is actually the Macellum (public market) of Roman Puteoli. It looks like a square courtyard onto which the shops, which open alternately inward and outward. Extensive traces of the marble floor and the covering of the toilets are the testimony of the incomparable architectural wealth of the monument.
