In Trajan's time, the temple was completedly rebuilt by Hadrian between 118 and 128, in the form was still see today. The inscription on the frieze of the porch, M(arcus) Agrippa L(uci) f(ilius) con(n)s(ul) tertrium fecit, was therefore placed there by Hadrian who never put his own name on any of the monuments be built.
