Beginning of the second century AD for Trajan (98/117) in addition or in substitution of the Naumachia of Augustus

Some remains of about 102 x 300 m (335 x 985 feet), maybe belonging to the Naumachia were seen during the construction of the Prati district at the end of the nineteenth century

The remains have not been completely excavated and it is believed to have been certainly larger
In 1996 other remains were found during ground surveys for the planned, but never built, tunnels below Castel Sant'Angelo
