Lot Essay

The Maison Carrée at Nîmes in southern France is one of the best preserved temples to be found anywhere in the territory of the Roman Empire. It was built c. 19-16 B.C. by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, also the original patron of the Pantheon, and was dedicated to his two sons, Gaius Julius Caesar Vipsanius and Lucius Caesar, adopted heirs of Emperor Augustus.
