The Pantheon, meaning, " To Every God", was rebuilt by the Emperor Hadrian in about 126 AD. Originally commissioned by Marcus Agrippa, the Pantheon was originally used as a temple to the ancient gods of Rome. It is one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in Rome, and it has been in continuous use since the 7th century.
The inscription across the façade says M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT (or in full, "M[arcus] Agrippa L[ucii] f[ilius] co[n] s[ul] tertium fecit,") which translates to "Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, made this building when consul for the third time."
