Description: This is a large trapezoidal warehouse complex, probably multi-storied.  It was built by Agrippa in the late first century BCE under the northwest slope of the Palatine. A series of chambers lie around the periphery and open toward the central courtyard, which contains a small shrine (sacellum) at its center with a mosaic floor that dates from the early-second century CE. An inscribed marble statue base found at the back of the shrine identifies the dedicators as a society of merchants (negotiantes).
