On the west side, centre left, the columns of the Forum were replaced. On the south side, on the right, the original columns of the portico still remains.
“The ancient portico of the Forum of Pompeii, of tufa covered with stucco, of Greek (Doric) style, in later times was largely replaced, or it probably all had to be, by a portico in that limestone, called travertine in Naples, of heavier and less beautiful form, but of more solid and perfect construction. 
On the entire west side, the ancient portico was demolished – still recognizable by the bases remaining in place – and they built or began to build the new one. On the south side, and on that part of the east side that is south of the road called Via dell'Abbondanza, the ancient portico remained.” 
(L’antico portico del Foro di Pompei, di tufo rivestito di stucco, di stile greco (dorico), in epoca posteriore fu in gran parte rimpiazzato, o doveva esserlo probabilmente tutto, da un portico in quella pietra calcare che a Napoli si chiama travertino di forme più pesanti e poco belle, ma di costruzione più solida e perfetta. Sul intera lato ovest fu demolito l’antico portico – riconoscibile ancora dalle basi rimaste al posto – e costruito, o cominciato a costruire quello nuovo. Sul lato sud, e su quello parte del lato est che sta a sud della strada detta – dell’Abbondanza, rimase il portico antico.)
See Mau, in Bullettino dell’Instituto di Corrispondenza Archeologica (DAIR), 06, 1891, (p.168).
