The name "Plutonium," or "Temple of Pluto," was proposed in the 19C by Penna, undoubtedly because of the location near the so-called "Inferi." The structure, function, and date of the building have not yet been determined. Salza Prina Ricotti notes that the presence of opus sectile floors shows that it was not a utilitarian building. She also records reports by Ligorio and Penna that columns were found here. In the absence of a monographic study, it is not possible to date or interpret the complex.
