Definition: Main place of business and commerce in Rome. Merchants, politicians, and just about everyone else did business at the Forum. Religious ceremonies took place there, as did public speeches. The Forum was surrounded by temples and other important buildings. Eventually, the Forum proved too small for the growing population. Emperors built their own Forums, which were much larger. Other cities built their own forums as well.
