La construcción de la biblioteca de Celso fue comenzada por Tiberio Julio Celso, que era Gobernador General de la Provincia de Asia. Esta persona quiso dejar algo para que se le recordara después de su muerte y decidió construir esta biblioteca. Cuando murió, su hijo continuó su obra y la acabó en el 135 d. C. La tumba de Celso se encuentra en la parte posterior. En los nichos de la parte inferior hay cuatro estatuas que representan a la Sabiduría, la Virtud, la Ciencia y la Fortuna. La puerta de Maceo - Mitrídates la construyeron estos dos esclavos en agradecimiento al Emperador Augusto por haberlos liberados.
