The Basilica (in English, Basilica) is opposite to the Temple of Apollo. It is a wide rectangular building (55 meters for 24 meters). It is divided in three naves with 28 tile columns tall 10 meters and having a diameter of 1.1 meters. It was destined to the treatment of the controversies and the judgments of civil and commercial character. It was also the center of the economic life of the town.
The entrance is situated in the forum and the interior remembers a Christian basilica with the hallway articulated by columns. After all you can see the platform of the court with two orders of columns.

Address: Regio VIII, I
