The original building is thought to have been a republican era building and possibly destroyed in the Great Fire of 64. Afterward, an industrial building was built on-site and built again around the second century. The first building to remain on the first floor was built was a sanctuary to the cult of Mithras. Two hundred years later these rooms were filled in with dirt and a church dedicated to Pope Clement I was built on top of it.
