Marcelleum at Forum in Pompeii, Italy

These three Corinthian columns comprised part of the Forum’s portico and stand at the western entrance of the Marcelleum. Inside were two dozen, single-room food stores (called a taberna) lining the north and south walls. The central courtyard was 121 by 88 feet, encircled by columns and used as a fish market. This covered marketplace dates back to the 2nd century BC.
