Built before 138 A.D by P. Quintilius, it was dedicated to the Emperor Hadrian, who came to visit the city from Athens in 128 A.D.  The facade of the temple has four Corinthian columns supporting a curved arch, in the middle of which contains a relief of Tyche, goddess of victory.  The side columns are square.  The pedestal with inscriptions in front of the temple, are the bases for the statues of the emperors between 293-305 CE, Diocletian, Maximian, Constantius I, and Galerius; the originals of the statues have not been found yet.
