Capitoline Temple of Volubilis

The Capitoline Temple of Volubilis is an ancient structure from the Roman period of Volubilis, extant in present day Morocco. This building incorporates a tetrastyle design and was dedicated to the Roman Emperor Macrinus. [1] The temple was dedicated to the trinity of Roman gods: Juno, Jupiter and Minerva.[2] According to Rogerson, a council would meet below the Capitoline Temple in order to make a declaration of war, and then later return to this location with the booty of the resultant war.

The Romans also constructed temples of the same name in Rome and other locations within the Roman Empire.
