The buildings in the west end of the Roman Forum date from the 1st and 2nd century AD. In contrast to most temples of both Greek and Roman periods in Greece, the temples each stood on a high podium constructed of rubble and cement. Originally they were clad with marble revetment and had a staircase ascending their east side. The temples themselves had a simple rectangular cella faced with columns supporting the roof only on their east side.
The route followed by the travel-writer Pausanias (II, 2, 8) at Corinth has been disputed but on the basis of recent archaeological evidence, and the monuments in this part of the Forum are now identified as follows:
Temple F: Venus Genetrix.
Temple G: Apollo of Klaros.
Temple H: Built during the reign of Commodus and perhaps dedicated to Heracles.
Temple J: Replaced the Fountain of Poseidon, dedicated by Cnaeus Babbius Philinus, during the reign of Commmodus and was perhaps also dedicated to Poseidon.
Monument of Babbus Philinus: A circular building with peristyle built on a podium. The Latin inscription reads Cnaeus Babbius Philinus, aedile, pontifex, undertook the construction at his own expense, and the same, as duovir, approved it. Babbius Philinus was a rich freedman of Greek descent who served as a local official in the region.
Temple D: Unidentified temple built in the late 2nd century A.D.
Temple K: Probably the temple of Tyche (Fortune) seen by Pausanias dismantled in the late 2nd century A.D.
