Portico with one hundred columns, at the north end side of the portico of the Theatre of Pompey and the sacred area of Largo Argentina
The official name was maybe PORTICUS LENTULORUM from the Lentuli family (members of the family who followed Pompey were consuls in 57 and 49 BC or consuls in 18 BC) sponsors of the building
At the time of Alexander Severus (222/235) it was rebuilt as BASILICA ALEXANDRINA, maybe unfinished
Maybe inside there were the "Statues of the fourteen nations conquered by Pompey" by Coponius
