The Portico of Octavia in the Circus Flaminius, part of the southern Campus Martius, was the monumental entrance to a complex with two temples - Jupiter and Juno- surrounded by porticoes. The first on the spot was 2nd Century BCE, built by Metellus. Octavia, Augustus' sister, built the next one, close to the Theater of Marcellus. It burned and was rebuilt in the Severan era, as per the inscription.
