was built at the beginning of the first century A.D. and was a huge
food market. In fact its name is derived from the Greek word makello
which means to sell. Past the grand portico decorated with statues, is
the large open air inner courtyard, at the center of which there was a
circular building (thˇlos). Against the back wall
there is a shrine which contained the statues of the emperor and
members of the imperial family. Today, these statues are exhibited at
Archaeological Museum of Naples.
