. 77, fig. 33); and this and the space under the rostra were paved with tiles overlying an earlier pavement of herring-bone brickwork; some of them bear stamps of the Severan period (CIL xv. 405). According to an older theory, now generally abandoned, the hemicycle was the Graecostasis of the time of Caesar (Nichols, Notizie dei Rostri), while Mau held it to be his rostra (Mitt. 1905, 230-266; Richter, BRT ii.; iv. ii; Delbrftck, Hellenist. Bauten, ii. 89; BPW 1912, 1737). (4) that of about 470 A.D. (?), when the rectangular part of the rostra was lengthened by a trapezoidal brick addition at the north end, the facade of which was also decorated with beaks. An inscription which ran the whole length of the enlarged platform recorded a restoration by the praefectus urbi, Junius Valentinus, in honour of Leo and Anthemius (?), possibly after a naval victory over the Vandals.

If we consider the point at which Caesar's body was burnt, it will seem natural that Mark Antony's oration should have been delivered at the opposite end of the forum (cf. Senec. Dial. iii. I. 3: a rostris usque ad arcum Fabianum to express the whole length of the forum). Augustus completed them (Pomponius, Dig. i. 2. 2) and he is represented seated on the rostra in a coin (Cohen, Aug. 529 =BM. Aug. 115=HC p. 75, fig. 32). A funeral oration in honour of Augustus was delivered from this rostra by Drusus (Suet. Aug. 100, where it is called vetera in contradistinction to the Rostra aedis divi lulii). Cassius Dio desc
