The Temple of Juno Lacinia is a ruined Ancient Greek temple dedicated to Hera (Juno) located on Capo Colonna in Calabria, Italy, near Crotone. The remaining feature is a Doric column with capital, about 27 feet (8.2 m) in height. Remains of marble roof-tiles have been seen on the spot and architectural fragments were excavated in 1886-1887 by the Archaeological Institute of America. The sculptures found were mostly buried again, but a few fragments, some decorative terra-cottas and a dedicatory inscription to Hera of the 6th century BC, in private possession at Crotone, are described by F. von Duhn in Notizie degli scavi.
