The capitolium, enclosed by a peribolus, was on the western side and the temple dedicated to the Capitoline Triad Jupiter, Juno and Minerva was erected in its centre. On the open pavement of the forum two massive votive columns arose in the immediate vicinity of the capitolium , one of which has been preservedto date in its original place.
The tabernae, rectangular spaces for merchants, were built along the outer eastern and northern side of the portico.
