The Forum of Caesar, Rome, Italy

The Forum of Caesar, also known as Forum Iulium or Forum Julium, Forum Caesaris,is a forum built by Julius Caesar near the Forum Romanum in Rome in 46 BC.

The Forum of Caesar originally meant an expansion of the Forum Romanum. The Forum, however, evolved so that it served two additional purposes. As Caesar became more and more involved in this project, the Forum became a place for public business that was related to the Senate in addition to a shrine for Caesar himself as well as Venus Genetrix.
