    As also suggested by recent studies, the temple of Iuno Moneta was probably located in the area where, at a later stage, the basilica di Santa Maria in Aracoeli was then built, especially nearby its transept, yet the exact location of the temple on the Arx spur has been debated for a long time, due to the fragmentation of archaeological data and later transformations.
    For example, other scholars have supposed that the religious complex of Santa Maria in Aracoeli was built on the space belonging to the Auguraculum.
    However, both the temple of Iuno and the Auguraculum were probably located in the same area of the Aracoeli complex on the north-eastern corner of the Capitoline Hill.
