Regio IV - Insula I - Portico IV,I,2

This is a porticus, 4.50 deep, to the south of the Campus of the Magna Mater. Brick piers with opus mixtum in between were set against the republican city wall. The masonry is probably Hadrianic. Along the front are brick columns, maybe from the period of Antoninus Pius.
