The hall

Tabularium - Vano di fondazione

An opening leads off from the gallery into a foundation area formed by large retaining walls supporting the upper floor of the Tabularium. 
At ground floor level we can see the remains of a building which predates the Tabularium. 
One of the three rooms which have been preserved, contains one of the oldest mosaic floors ound in Rome, a white background with irregular chips of coloured marble.
