The Forum of Julius Caesar, consecrated in 46 B.C. and later finished by Augustus was the first of the so-called Imperial Forums built with the spoils of victory from the Gallic Wars. Formed by a rectangular piazza surrounded on all sides by porticoes, it had at its center the Temple of Venus Genetrix.
The Julian family, to which Julius belonged, claimed to originate from Julo, or Ascanius, son of the Trojan hero Aeneas, who according to Homeric mythology was the son of the mortal Anchises and the Goddess Venus. The temple featured many works of art, among them the sculpture of Venus Genetrix by Arcesilao.
In its simplicity the Forum of Julius Caesar surpasses the narrow dimensions of the Republican age, and from an historical point of view, underlines the passage to the imperial age by anticipating the monumental complexes built by Caesar’s successors. The Forum was expanded by Trajan, who added the Basilica Argentaria.
