This statue went on to adorned the Temple of Pax (later the Forum Pacis), built by Vespasian to celebrate the end of the Jewish War. Myron’s statues were brought to Rome by Octavian and were originally placed in the temple of Apollo on the Palatine, which he dedicated in 28 B.C. Vespasian moved them to the new Temple of Pax that he began building in 71 AD.
