Quintus Asconius Pedianus
Populus duce Sex. Clodio scriba corpus P. Clodii in curiam intulit cremavitque subselliis et tribunalibus et mensis et codicibus librariorum; quo igne et ipsa quoque curia flagravit, et item Porcia basilica quae erat ei iuncta ambusta est.
The people, with Sex. Clodius the scribe leading them, brought the body of P. Clodius into the Curia and cremated it, using benches and tables and furniture and the note books of the clerks. In this fire both the curia itself went up in flames and likewise the Basilica Porcia, which was next to it, was burned down.
