This small travertine monument (possibly a compital shrine or sacellum dedicated to the crossroad deities), usually ignored, is a precious document of the Augustan-era activity in the Forum Boarium. It is located at its original find site, but has been placed on a modern brick base approximately 2 meters above the ancient pavement level where it was found.
