English: The temple and altar served the Imperial cult and were dedicated to Emperor Domitian (A.D. 81-96); after his death and condemnation of his memory ( damnatio memoriae), however, they were dedicated to the Flavian family. The temple, with its 8 x 13 columns constructed upon a six- stepped substructure (24 x 34 m), was erected on a terrace supported by mighty buttresses. After the victory of Christianity it was torn down to its foundations and today it has almost completely disappeared.

Turkish: İmparator kültüne hizmet eden tapınak ve sunak aslen imparator Domitianus'a (İ.S. 81-96) adanmış, ancak imparatorun ölümünden ve anısının lanetlenmesinden sonra (danınatıo memoriae) Flaviuslar ailesine devredilmiştir. Altı basamaklı bir altyapının (24 x 34 m) üzerinde yükselen 8 x 13'Iük sütunlu tapınak, güçlü destek yapıları ile oluşturulmuş bir teras uzerine inşa edilmiştir. Hıristiyanlığın zaferiyle bina temel taşlarına kadar sökülmüş ve günümüzde neredeyse tamamıyla yok olmuştur.
