What in ancient Rome was called a basilica?

mausoleum
fair and court hall
consul's building
sacrificial house
The Roman basilica was a large public building where business or legal matters could be transacted. The first basilicas had no religious function at all. As early as the time of Augustus, a public basilica for transacting business had been part of any settlement that considered itself a city, used in the same way as the covered market houses of late medieval northern Europe.
