Basilica Antoniniani


It is probable that the temple of Aurelius, aedes divi Antonini, stood just west of this column, in the same relation to it as the temple of Trajan to his column, and that temple and column were surrounded by a porticus; but no traces of this temple have been found. Near the column was a lodge, built in 193 A.D. by Adrastus, procurator columnae centenariae diti Marci, at the expense of the government. The inscription which records this transaction has been preserved.   (Platner)
