Description
Porticus of Octavia, Rome. built ostensibly by Octavia, the sister of Augustus (Fest. 178; Ov. AA i.69), but really by Augustus and dedicated in the name of Octavia (Suet. Aug. 29; Cass. Dio xlix.43; Liv. Ep. 138) at some time after 27 B.C. Besides the temples, there were within the enclosure a biblioteca erected by Octavia in memory of the youthful Marcellus (Suet. de gramm. 21; Plut. Marc. 30), a curia Octaviae (Plin. NH xxxvi.28), and a schola (ib. xxxv.114) or scholae (ib. xxxvi.22). Whether these were different parts of one building, or entirely different structures, is uncertain. IThe Senate probably met in the curia.
