The Tabularium in Rome was the building in which was housed the state archive. It was comissioned by one of Sulla's lieutenants, Q. Lutatius Catulus, and designed by the architect Cornelius in 78 BC. It survives only to first floor level. The upper storey has been replaced by the medieval Senatorial Palace.
