    The basilica was Pompeii's law court and stock exchange. Remains of the columns can clearly be seen in the picture, though it would probably take a leap of imagination to imagine the basilica in all its glory.

    The basilica lies off the southwestern side of the forum and was built in the second half of the 2nd century BC. The building was dedicated to administering justice and for business negotiations.

    The Basilica is near the west side of the forum.
    The interior used to have two aisles bordered by a number of columns . The remains of the columns can give us an idea of the size of the columns.

    This was the court of Law and is near the forum. It was the most important public building in Pompei - serving as a courthouse and chamber of commerce.
