PORTICUS PHILIPPI

built without doubt around the temple of HERCULES MUSARUM (q.v.) by L. Marcius Philippus, the stepfather of Augustus, at the same time that he rebuilt the temple, although this is not stated in so many words (Mart. v. 49. 11-12; HJ 544-545). It is represented on the Marble Plan (frg. 33), and is mentioned in Not. (Reg. IX). It contained some famous pictures (Plin. NH xxxv. 66, 114, 144), and hairdressers' shops (Ov. AA iii. 168).
