Not on view

Plate 12, View of the Temple of Minerva (or Temple of Pallas) in the Forum of Nerva. Figures appear in the foreground and around the monument, and a group of architectural fragments are scattered at right. The Colosseum, identified in the inscription, is visible in the background at left. This image, one of twenty-nine full-page plates in the volume, faces page 17 which includes a description of the temple. Many prints of this time misidentify the ruins of the Temple of Minerva as the Temple of Pallas, although the title of the plate suggests the uncertainty of the identification.
