During his reign Emperor Augustus inaugurated an ambitious building programme, transforming Rome ‘from a city of brick into one of marble’, as he himself put it.
With the possible help of Greek architects, he constructed a new forum north of and at right angles to Julius Caesar’s. Two sides of it were lined with immense colonnades, and its focus was a white marble temple. Completed in 2 BC, the temple was filled with treasures and dedicated to Mars Ultor (Mars the Avenger) in commemoration of Augustus’ victory at Philippi (42 BC), where retribution for Caesar’s murder was exacted.
A high wall, which still exists at the rear of the Forum, separated it from the poor, densely populated Subura district which lay between the Esquiline and Viminal hills. Little else survives here other than three of the temple’s columns and, to the west of the Forum, the medieval Casa dei Cavalieri di Rodi (House of the Knights of Rhodes) where the atrium is all that remains of the Augustan palace.
