Curia Pompei  (Senate-House of Pompeius)


All links in this entry open a new window that contains the FULL Latin and English translation for the respective source.



A hall in the Porticus Pompei (q.v.), probably one of its exedrae (Plut. Brut. 14; Plin. NH 35.59), where the senate sometimes met (Gell. 14.7.7.; Asc. in Mil. 67; Cass. Dio 44.16), and where Caesar was murdered (Cic. de div. 2.23; Nic. Damasc. Caes. 23; Liv. Per. 116; Suet. Iul. 80, 81 (c. Pompeiana); Plut. Caes. 66-67; App. BC 2.111, App. BC 114-118; Eutrop. 6.25). The statue of Pompeius that stood in the exedra was removed by Augustus, who walled up the curia as a locus sceleratus (Suet. Div. Iul. 88; Aug. 31; Cass. Dio 47.19).
