Rome's Portico d'Ottavia

The recently-restored Portico d’Ottavia is a complex of ancient monuments rebuilt by Octavian (later the emperor Augustus) around 27 BC and dedicated to his sister Octavia. Over the centuries it has survived fire, had its marble and artworks pillaged, and was used as a fish market from mediaeval times until the end of the 19th century. It has undergone numerous reconstructions and remains the largest Roman archaeological attraction in Rome's Jewish Ghetto district.
