Located within the town house of the decurio Marcus Antonius Victorinus. Orientation N-S. 7m x 16m The shrine is divided up into three parts-two ante rooms (the front room is populated by the excavators as a Shrine of Mercury. Certainly a large statue base stood here) and the cella trichora with its central aisle about 2 feet below ground level. The benches were accessed by a single step on either side of the bottom of the two cella entrance steps. A fragment of the tauroctony was found in the excavations and would have stood on the large stone base at the end (south) wall of the cella.
