The Basilica Aemilia- Paulli is a law court in the Roman Forum is a rich history. The first basilica built on this site was the 2nd Century BCE. The definitive structure on site was built by Augustus (though in Paullus' name) with a massive solid marble portico facing the forum. The structure was constructed after the fire in 14 BCE. This structure was considered by Pliny the Elder to be one of the most beautiful structures in Rome. It was decorated with many colored marbles, and colored marble barbarian statues, as well as a narrative frieze with unique scenes from at. least the period of Romulus, with many legendary battles and events. The basilica remains, excavated by Giacomo Boni in the late 19th Century CE, are located between the Curia and the Temple of Antoninus Pius (r. 138-161 CE) and Faustina.
