The Temple of Bellona (Latin templum Bellonae) was the main sanctuary of the Roman goddess of war Bellona on the Field of Mars in Rome.
Bellona is the goddess of the intoxication of war and the ecstasy in battle and was worshiped in various places in Rome. Their most important temple was built in 296 BCE. Praised by Appius Claudius Caecus during his second consulate before a battle against a united army of the Etruscans and Samnites, the temple was consecrated a few years later, 293 BCE on June 3rd.
