Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CRYPTA BALBI (search)
CRYPTA BALBI mentioned only in the Notitia (Reg. 1), but probably built by Balbus in 15 B.C. at the same time as his theatre (q.v.). The name is best explained as a term used for a vaulted passage lighted from above (RE iv. 1732), and this building may have been a sort of ambulatory round the cavea of the theatre. No traces of it have been found, and the remains in the Via dei Calderari, formerly identified as the Crypta Balbi, belong to another structure (cf. PORTICUS MINUCIA; HJ 521, 545; Jord. ii. 534; Gilb. iii. 329).

The porticus was rectangular, about 115 metres long and 75 wide, with an outer wall and double row of columns within. In each of the long sides were three niches, the central one square, the others semi-circular. There was also a semi-circular apse on the south side. The entrance was on the north, where a flight of steps, 20 metres wide, led down to the clivus Suburanus. In the centre of the area was something that appears to have been a fo
