A view of the Roman macellum, or market place, of Pozzuoli. Excavations of the site we ordered in 1750 by King Charles of Naples and the site was wrongly thought to be a temple to Serapis after excavators discovered a statue of the diety at the site. The image shows the three recognisable marble columns and figures inspecting the achitectural fragments.
