Pergamon - Temple of Trajan

The Temple of Trajan was a 2nd century temple in Corinthian order, dedicated to Trajan, built by his successor Hadrian. Both emperors were worshipped there. The temple was built of marble, probably on the site of a previous Hellenistic building.

In ancient times, Pergamon was in Aeolis, an area that comprised the west and northwestern region of Asia Minor. Today it is located 16 miles from the Aegean Sea near Bergama, Turkey.
