Porticus This feature of church design originated in the late Roman period and continued to appear in those built on the European continent and, in Anglo-Saxon England, until the 8th century.
Porticus A porticus, in church architecture and archaeology, is usually a small room in a church. Commonly these form extensions to the north and south sides of a church, giving the building a cruciform plan. The rooms may function as chapels, rudimentary transepts or burial-places. For example, Anglo-Saxon kings of Kent were buried in the south porticus at St Augustine's Abbey, with the exception of Eadberht II, who was buried in a similar location in St Mary's Church, Reculver.
Porticus Argonautarum The building was located in the "Saepta Julia", a large square in the Campus Martius used for public "comitia" (assemblies). The square, a large free space surrounded by porticoes, was finished by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, admiral and friend of emperor Augustus, in 27 BC. The portico of the Argonauts was added in 25 BC, to commemorate Agrippa's naval victories in 31 BC: it took its name from its decorations, which depicted the mythological expedition of Jason.
Porticus Aemilia Sources do not mention the early function of the portico, that rose close to the "Emporium", the river port of the town, arguably placed near Aventine Hill. It has been suggested to identify the portico with the remains that rise between Via Beniamino Franklin and Via Marmorata: some surviving "opus incertum" tuff walls are still visible in Via Branca, Via Rubattino and Via Florio. In 2006 an alternative proposal identified these structures with the republican "Navalia", that, in their former period, were destined to house the war ships of the Roman navy. Excavations carried out, starting from 2010, by the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma, in cooperation with the Reale Istituto Neerlandese di Roma and the I Municipio, haven't still acquired useful informations in support of this identification, but not even in support of the identification with the "Porticus Aemilia" quoted by literary sources (it could just be a porticoed street, between Porta Trigemina and the Emporium, and not a warehouse).
Porticus Catuli The Porticus Catuli ("Portico of Catulus") was a landmark (Latin "monumentum") on the Palatine Hill in ancient Rome. It was built by Quintus Lutatius Catulus (consul 102 BC) to commemorate his joint victory with Gaius Marius over the Cimbri at Vercellae.
Porticus Aemilia The distance between the building and the river - where, maybe since the last Republican age, the wares uploaded from the boats
Porticus Octaviae The building, which lies in rione Sant'Angelo, represents the center of the Roman Ghetto.
Porticus Argonautarum Studies of the "Forma Urbis" (an ancient detailed plan of Rome) have located the portico in what is now Via della Minerva, near the basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva.
Porticus Aemilia During Trajan age or later, other edifices were interposed between the river and the "opus incertum" building.
Porticus Catuli The portico was adjacent to the house "(domus)" of Catulus, which Pliny the Elder regarded as one of the grandest built in the late 2nd century BC. The practice of expanding a family's "domus" from the relatively modest structures of the mid-Republic began at this time. The Porticus Catuli became known for the display of art works there. Its impressiveness rivaled that of the Temple of Honor and Virtue built by Marius also to commemorate the victory, for which both men earned a triumph.
