Temple of Neptune

“Paestum, the Greek Poseidonia, was a colony of Sybaris. The malarial atmosphere of the place led to its desertion in the ninth century of our era. Hence the buildings there were not used as quarries for later structures. The so-called ‘Temple of Neptune’ at Paestum is one of the best preserved monuments of antiquity."—Webster, 1913
