Roman temple

There are the ruins of a Antae temple of a rugged design that lacked decoration. He noted that the doorway of the temple does not face the summit, but instead aligns to a northerly area of the mountain that is covered by a ridge. A cult statue was suggested to have featured in the temple, of which only the framing columns have survived. Three sections of the east antae pillar were also still in place.[1]
