Regio IV - Insula IX - Loggia di Cartilio Poplicola (IV,IX,1)

This seems to have been some sort of covered square. It was named after the adjacent republican tomb. There is no indication as to the function. The roof was supported by rows of brick piers. In the back part is a small courtyard. It was built in the Hadrianic period (red brick piers of the facade, yellow brick piers in the interior). Cf. the loggia's at the south end of I,V,2 and I,VI,1.
