About Basilica Aemelia
Basilica Aemelia was a commercial building in the Roman Forum where the financial professionals of Ancient Rome would convene.
Considered to be one of the most impressive of the Forum’s structures, it is thought that Basilica Aemelia was built and rebuilt several times. Its first incarnation may have been erected in 179 BC and it was finally burnt to the ground in the fifth century AD.
Parts of the Basilica Aemelia have since been rebuilt, although little remains except remnants of columns and its pavement.
