View looking north along the exterior eastern wall of the Temple of Augustus.  On this eastern exterior wall the text describing the deeds of the Roman Emperor Augustus (27 B.C.–A.D. 17) are inscribed in Greek.  This text is called the “Res Gestae” and is of great historical value.

The entrance to the temple was between the two walls that project out on the left (south) side of the image.  These are called the “ante,” and on the interior of these projecting walls the “Res Gestae” is inscribed in Latin.

The three windows in this eastern wall were constructed during the time (Byzantine) when this structure was used as a Church.
