Inscription.

Located near the temple of Vesta, the Regia is believed to have been built by king Numa Pompilius as the place where the kings of Rome exercised their political and religious power. The plan resembles that of archaic houses and its royal nature is attested by the rich architectural terracottas found here. Excavations have identified five different construction phases dating to between the 7th and 6th century BC when the building took on its definitive appearance. Consisting of three rooms opening onto a trapezoid courtyard, it hosted the sacrarium in which the attributes of the god Mars were preserved inside one of the rooms. Inside the Regia, moreover, the annales, the calendar and the archives of the Pontifex Maximus were preserved.

Gli scavi hanno individuato cinque differenti fasi costruttive, databili tra il VII e il VI secolo a.C., quando l'edificio acquistò il suo aspetto definitivo. Costituita da tre ambienti aperti su un cortile trapezoidale, conservava all'interno di uno degli ambienti il sacrarium in cui erano
