La cosi detta Basilica è  una grande piazza pavimentata con lastre marmoree, bordata da portici su tutti i lati e con un'esedra quadrata al centro del lato di fondo, inquadrata da due absidi laterali. Nell'esedra centrale trovavano posto la statua loricata di Tito (MANN, inv. 6059) e quelle sedute di Claudio e di Augusto, raffigurati come Giove in trono (inv. 6040 e 6056); le absidi laterali erano decorate con i grandi quadri di IV Stile raffiguranti i seguenti soggetti: il riconoscimento di Telefo da parte di Ercole (inv. 9008), che si ritiene derivato dall'Hercules Aversus di Apelle citato da Plinio il Vecchio nel Tempio di Diana sull'Aventino; la liberazione dei fanciulli ateniesi per mano di Teseo (inv. 9049), l'educazione musicale di Olimpo a opera di Marsia (inv. 9151) e l'educazione musicale di Achille ad opera di Chirone (inv. 9109). Nei basamenti posti davanti alle absidi erano invece le statue bronzee di Augusto e Claudio in nudità eroica (inv.5595); alla decorazione dei portici laterali appartenevano infine un fregio illustrante episodi e imprese della vita di Ercole e un pannello con Medea (inv. 8976). Nell'edificio dovevano inoltre affollarsi statue di molti personaggi della dinastia giulio-claudia e di quella flavia. Varie sono le ipotesi moderne sulla destinazione di questo edificio; fra queste quella che vi riconosce l'Augusteum, l'edificio adibito al culto imperiale, la cui costruzione risalirebbe all’età claudia, con successivi aggiornamenti sul piano dell'arredo scultoreo.

The so-called Basilica is a large square paved with marble slabs, edged by porticoes on all sides and with a square exedra in the centre of the bottom side, framed by two lateral apses. In the central Exedra were placed the armoured statue of Titus (MANN, Inv. 6059) and the seated statues of Claudius and Augustus, depicted as Jupiter enthroned (Inv. 6040 and 6056); The lateral apses were decorated with the large paintings of IV Stile depicting the following subjects: the recognition of Telephus by Hercules (Inv. 9008), which is believed to have been derived from the Hercules Aversus by the Greek painter Apelle cited by Pliny the Elder in the temple of Diana On the Aventine Hill; The liberation of the Athenian children at the hands of Theseus (Inv. 9049), the musical education of Olympus at the hands of Marsyas (Inv. 9151) and the musical education of Achilles by Chiron (Inv. 9109). On bases placed in front of the apses were the bronze statues of Augustus (Inv. 5595) and Claudius in heroic nudity (Inv. 5593); Finally, to the decoration of the side porches belonged a frieze illustrating episodes and feats of Hercules' life and a panel with Medea (Inv. 8976). The building also contained a large number of statues of many of members of the Giulio-Claudian and Flavian dynasties. There are many modern hypotheses about the purpose of this building; Among these is the Augusteum, the building used for the imperial cult, whose construction dates back to the age of Claudius, with subsequent updates on the floor of sculptural furnishings.
