Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, BASILICA PORCIA (search)
BASILICA PORCIA the first basilica in Rome, built for judicial and business purposes by Cato in 184 B.C., in the face of much opposition (Liv. xxxix. 44; Ascon. in Mil. arg. 34; Plut. Cat. Mai. 19; Cat. Min. 5; de vir. ill. 47). It stood a little west of the curia, IN LAUTUMIIS (q.v.), on ground purchased by Cato and occupied by shops and two private houses, those of Maenius and Titius. In it the tribunes held court. It was burned in 52 B.C. with the curia of Sulla at the funeral of Clodius, and probably totally destroyed, as there is no further mention of it (Jord. i. 2. 344; Mitt. 1893, 84, 91; BC 1914, 107; Thed. 138- 139).

t was approached by a flight of steps (Liv. i. 48; Dion. Hal. iv. 38; cf. Liv. i. 36. 5). On its side wall, or at one side of it (in latere curiae), was a painting of the victory of M. Valerius Messala over Hiero and the Carthaginians in 263 B.C. (Plin. NH xxxv. 22; see TABULA VALERIA (2)). It was restored by Sulla in 80 B.C. and somewhat enlarged, the statues of Pythagoras and Alcibiades, which had stood at the corners of the Comitium, being removed (Plin. xxxiv. 26; cf. Dio xl. 49). In 52 B.C. it was burnt down by the partisans of Clodius and rebuilt by Sulla's son Faustus (Cic. pro Mil. 90, and Ascon. in loc. ; Pp. 29, 40, ed. Kiessling and Schoell. Dio, loc. cit.; Cic. de fin. v. 2 (written in 45 B.C.): Curiam nostram, Hostiliam dico, non hanc novam, quae minor mihi videtur postquam est maior, must also refer to this curia, and not to that of the elder Sulla, as Richter, 94, thinks). In 44 B.C. it was decided to build a new curia (Dio xliv. 5: e)peidh\ to\ *osti/lion kai/per

the statement of Chron. Pasch. a. u. c. 702; Chron. min. ed. Mommsen, i. 215). Gellius, however, goes on to say that the inscription in theatre did not read so in his day, nam cum multis annis postea scaena, quae prociderat, refecta esset, numerus tertii consulatus non uti initio primoribus litteris sed tribus tantum liniolis incisis significatus est. Whatever may have been true of the dedication, the inscription on the temple, or on the temple and scaena both, was evidently put in place in 52 B.C. From the notice in two calendars (Fast. Allif. Amit. ad pr. Id. Aug., CIL i². p. 217, 244, 324; cf. Suet. Claud. 2 : cum prius apud superiores aedes supplicasset) it appears that there were shrines or altars to three other deities, Honor Virtus and Felicitas, similarly placed in the theatre, and perhaps a fourth (Fast. Allif.: V. ... ?). Augustus restored the theatre at great expense in 32 B.C. (Mon. Anc. iv. 9: sine ulla inscriptione nominis mei; cf., however, CIL vi. 9404: in schola sub t

THEATRUM POMPEI), Pompeius built at the top of the central part of the cavea, so that the rows of seats might appear to be the steps leading up to it, and the whole structure be dedicated as a temple and not as a theatre (Tert. de spect. 0o; Tiro ap. Gell. x. I. 7, where the temple is called aedes Victoriae for Veneris Victricis; cf. Mommsen, CIL i. p. 323). The dedication took place in Pompeius' second consulship in 55 B.C. (Plin. NH viii. 20), but the inscription was not put in place until 52 (Gell. loc. cit.). The day of dedication was 12th August (Fast. Allif. Amit. ad prid. Id. Aug., CIL i². p. 217, 244, 324), when Honos et Virtus and Felicitas were joined with Venus, indicating that shrines of these deities stood near that of Venus (cf. Suet. Claud. 21: ludos dedicationis Pom- peiani theatri ... cum prius apud superiores aedes supplicaverat). The temple is mentioned on an inscription (vi. 785), It was found among the remains of the theatre near S. Maria di Grottapinta. and in
