The hexastyle (6 columns in front) Temple of Antoninus and Faustina has 17 m high Corinthian columns [see Architectural Orders] of cipollino marble. There are two extra columns at the sides of the porch. The cella and the podium on which it stands are made of peperino. The cella was covered with slabs of travertine, but they have been removed. The three lowest steps of the stairway to the porch are original. An altar stood on the middle of the stairway. [Source: Temple of Antoninus and Faustina]
