Vipsanius Agrippa, friend, confidant, and son-in-law to the emperor Augustus, was a prodigious builder, His projects tended to be utilitarian, ones that improved the infrastructure of Rome, a city that had been neglected for many years. He improved the water supply and sewer system, constructed a grand public bath in the Campus Martius, and built the predecessor to the Pantheon, which still stands. Less known and understood is his Horrea Agrippiana.
