Regio V - Insula XVIII - Edificio V,XVIII,1 and Porta Secondaria

Building V,XVIII,1 was set against the city wall, between the Porta Romana and a secondary gate. Only the beginning of the perimetric walls has been preserved. It has been dated to the reign of Marcus Aurelius.

Little remains of the secondary gate, that was discovered in 1856 by C.L. Visconti. It is 34 m. to the south of the Porta Romana. It is a later addition, perhaps contemporaneous with the rebuilding of the Porta Romana at the end of the first century AD.
