Most of the buildings that have been excavated were built in the first half of the 2nd century A.D. when such notable emperors such as Trajan and Hadrian ruled. Ostia, the first Roman colony, became immediately a river port acquiring a commercial function to supply Rome with food stuff, particularly wheat, even if its strategic military function as naval base certainly prevailed.
