The Pantheon of Rome, completed in c. 125 CE under the reign of Hadrian. The exact function of the building in antiquity is not known, no other example is known in Rome of a temple to all the gods (as its name suggests) and it was, therefore, more likely built as a building or temple for a ruler cult.
