Macellum

Square (50 x 50 m) trading yard with an octagonal, two-storey pavilion in the center. Built in the 1st quarter of the 2nd century AD and used until the late 6th/early 7th century. In the yard merchants and money changers had their permanent places. There are still supports with lion heads for the stone tables of the merchants. In Roman times there were at least three entrances.
