This semi-circular wall supports the south-western end of the Hippodrome, a vast structure begun in 203 by Emperor Septimius Severus and enlarged by Constantine the Great in the 4th century. The houses, including the apartments on the right, were demolished some years ago, exposing more of the ancient wall to public display.
