The Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus was built by the last of the 'Etruscan' Kings of Rome in 509 B.C., just before his downfall, and consecrated in the first year of the Roman Republic. The Capitoline Hill was the most significant of the seven hill of Rome, and the Temple to Jupiter the most sacred shrine in the city. It was burned and destroyed three times. Its foundations are now beneath the Palazzo Caffarelli.
