This building was originally a meeting-place
for spectators who went to the Great Theatre.
In Neros time it was converted to
quarters for the gladiators who used to live there with their
families and used it to practice
gladiatorial contests. The family living areas were spread over two floors.
Many fascinating weapons were discovered
here and are on display in the Archeological Museum.
