A temple to the goddess Minerva has been found underneath the main cathedral in Milan.

Archaeological excavations to unearth the remains of the large city that, beginning in 292 A.D., was the capital of the Western Roman Empire for over a century continue despite funding difficulties.

The entire forum occupied an estimated surface area of 166 by 55 square meters.
