Sirs/Ma'ams, This will be my second question, regarding the cult of god Neptune in the Roman Empire. Did Neptune have a prominent public cult in the Empire? If not, then what gods had popular public cults? If Neptune had a cult, then where were his temples located?
Sirs/Ma'ams, This is going to be my first question. I have read quite a lot about the cults of Isis, Cybele, Jupiter in his various epithets, etc. But I have never heard of any large temple dedicated to the gods Mercury, Saturn or Vulcan outside Rome, say in the provinces. These gods were important in Greco Roman mythology, but I feel that they didn't have large temples or public cults spread throughout the Empire. Am I right?
