Image of a coin of Herod Philip (4 BC- AD34) minted at Paneas showing the temple built by his father Herod the Great (37–4 BC) at/near Paneas in honor of the Roman Emperor Augustus (27 BC - AD14).

Note the four columns on the front of the temple.  According to the excavators of Omrit, the temple built by Herod the Great is what they call the "First Temple" (actually the second religious shrine) at Omrit.
