The Temple of Isis was one of the first discoveries during the excavation of Pompeii in 1764. It inspired artists, including a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who visited at the age of 13. His memories of the site are thought to have influenced his composition of The Magic Flute.

This engraving of the temple as it appeared in the year of its destruction was published in Jean-Claude Richard de Saint Non’s A Picturesque Voyage of Naples and Sicily (1781-1786). The figures were engraved by Jean Duplessis-Berthaux and the scenery by Edouard and Louis Gautier Dagoty.
