Regio VII



The Macellum 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 the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.
