Roman-era temple excavated in Tyre

PHOENICIAN WATCH: New Roman Temple Discovered in Ancient Phoenician City of Tyre. The temple's location "in the most elevated area of the ancient island highlights this building's particular status." (Jesse Holth, ARTNEWS). So far the excavators don't know which god was worshipped in the temple.
