Baths of Neptune
Built by Hadrian (117-138) on pre-existing baths and then restored at the end of the 2nd and the fourth centuries CE
This mosaic gave the baths their modern name. Here Neptune is depicted in a chariot drawn by four hippocampi encircled by sea monsters, dolphins, tritons, and Nereids
Forum of the Corporations
Behind the scaena of the theater, the Forum of the Corporations is situated in a kind of U-shape arrangement of offices for merchants and businessmen. The former entrance was actually on the opposite side, towards the Tiber in the center of the short side. It is dated at about the same times as the theater, which is evidenced by the fact that the structures are aligned.
Under the Romans, Ostia Antica reached a peak of some 75,000 inhabitants in the 2nd and 3rd century AD
MILLS BAKERS OF OSTIA
Roman bakeries were usually mills-bakeries. Only in later antiquity can we make a distinction between the milling and baking The Ostian bakeries may be called factories, especially when they are compared to their counterparts in Pompeii. The latter contained only three to four millstones, very close to each other. The spacious Ostian bakeries must have been operated in a much more efficient way and more hours per day
On the north side of the Forum is the Capitolium, the main temple of Ostia Antica. The Capitolium was dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. The building you can see during your Ostia Antica tour was built during the empire of Hadrian. It is about 15 meters wide and 35 meters long and was built on a podium with 21 steps and surrounded by porticoes. There was also a marble altar in front of the temple.
Many of Ostia Antica's inhabitants lived in apartment buildings. You can see the separate units if you climb the stairs inside.In Roman architecture, an insula (Latin for "island," plural insulae) was a kind of apartment building that housed most of the urban citizen population of ancient Rome, including ordinary people of lower- or middle-class status (the plebs) and all but the wealthiest
