This square temple lies in a temenos on a hilltop outside Weymouth. The base of the cella wall and the pavement floor of the portico survived, but the outer wall had been robbed-away. The cella wall was 3 ft. 8 in. thick and covered an area measuring about 32 feet square. The temple either faced east or south. Built in the 4th century, there were squatters living in the building during the 5th century. (Type I)
