According to Wallace-Hadrill, “No wagons or carts carrying supplies to shops and private houses could pass here. 
Even Cardo III was end-stopped. A rectangular structure, a little over a metre high, stands in the way of traffic.
Its function is not obvious. 
It has been identified as a tribunal, or suggestum, from which a magistrate could address the people, or a public crier could make an announcement.
An alternative would be to see it as a base of a small shrine.”
