Detail of a marble Corinthian pilaster capital, entablature, and inscription from the Porticus Octaviae, Rome. The propylaeum gate to the temple precinct was built in the late first century BCE by Octavia, the sister of Augustus, apparently to complete a project started by her son Marcellus. The Augustan-period project replaced the Porticus Metelli. Repairs and renovations in brick are recorded to have been undertaken by Septimius Severus and his son Caracalla in 203 (CIL 6.1034)

A panoramic view of the east side of the Porta Maggiore in Rome, made up of six separate photographs. Traces of the piers that supported the Claudian aqueducts can be seen in tuff (tufa) blocks on the left and right sides of the travertine "gate." It was not meant as a gate when first built (52 CE) but a monument to the entry point of the aqueducts to Rome. In the center foreground are the remains of the Tomb of Eurysaces.
