Built between mid-6th — 4th centuries BCE.
Description:
Altars from so-called Sanctuary of Thirteen Altars, founded in Lavinium in 6th century B.C. Built between mid-6th — 4th centuries B.C., it is the greatest monument discovered during the excavations in Lavinium. A suggestion exists of identification of the Thirteen Altars with Aphrodisium, the temple of Venus, but the version of dedication of the monument to different gods is more probable.
