More images of the temple of the sun in Rome

This collection of old photos includes this 1850 image of some large slabs of masonry from the temple in the Giardini Colonna:

Temple of the Sun, Rome. G. Caneva, 1850

On this site I find another drawing: “Il Tempio del Sole e il Palazzo del Quirinale, 1616.” by Aloisio Giovannoli:

Sadly the image is too small for me to even read the writing at the bottom. The view is looking towards the brand new Palazzo di Quirinale, completed in 1616.

A bunch of images of fragments from the temple, taken in 1910, are here.  None are especially interesting.
