This chapter begins by describing the Fora of Caesar, and then explains why the said area was constructed. It also enumerates some of the constructions that can be found in the Fora of Caesar. Next, the chapter describes the Forum of Augustus as the second Imperial fora, in chronological order, built by Augustus with money obtained from war booty, as the emperor himself records in his autobiography. It also identifies several important structures in the fora, and describes another forum, the Forum of Nerva or the Transitorium. The chapter enumerates some of the remains that were perceived to be located at the Transitorium, and also discusses the Forum of Trajan and the Temple of Peace.
