Underground Temple of Romulus Discovered

Italian authorities report the discovery of an underground temple that appears to have been devote to Romulus, the quasi-mythical founder of the city or Rome. An excerpt from the Ansa news site states:

“A hypogeum or underground temple and tomb structure with a tufa sarcophagus linked with what looks like an altar has been discovered in the Roman Forum, the Colosseum Archaeological Park director Alfonsina Russo said Monday.

“The space is believed to be part of a votive area called a heroon devoted to the founder of Rome, Romulus, she said.”
