Roman Temple Survivals
Caption
Around back of the cathedral, a small courtyard provides a clear view of the 5th-century east wall of the church. It incorporates materials from the 1st-century Roman temple that preceded it, including animals from its sculptured frieze and an inscription: "This fountain, by divine aid, is a remedy for the sick, helping them without payment when Hippocrates' art fails." This refers to the nearby well, which was fed by a sacred spring.
