BASILICA OPIMIA erected probably by the consul L. Opimius in 121 B.C., at the same time that he restored the temple of Concord. The basilica must have stood just north of the temple, between it and the Tullianum (Varro, LL v. 156), and it was probably removed when Tiberius rebuilt the temple, as it is not mentioned after that date (CIL vi. 2338, 2339; DE i. 978; Thed. 145) The celeberrimum monumentum Opimi of Cicero (pro Sest. 140) refers probably to both temple and basilica; celeberrimum (' much frequented,' not 'magnificent') is contrasted with his lonely tomb on the shore at Dyrrachium (CP 1917, 194).
