The temple of Nemesis Goddess

Nemesis was the goddess of justice, equity, luck and destiny. She could change the fate of the ones that faced death and danger many times and that is the reason why she was praised mainly by soldiers and gladiators. Therefore the goddess was closely connected to the amphitheatre’s world.


The sanctuaries dedicated to her are nearby the amphitheatres or even built inside the building. The sanctuary of Porolissum was built at the end of the 2nd century or the beginning of the 3rd century A.D. Perhaps this was a place of worship for other deities that are related one way or another to the activities in the arenas, especially in the animal fights (venatio), as it was Liber Pater, the god of vegetation and grapes, or Silvanus, the protector god of forests, fields and wild animals.
