From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    It was the custom of the Roman governors to erect their
    tribunals in open places, as the market-place, the circus, or
    even the highway. Pilate caused his seat of judgment to be set
    down in a place called "the Pavement" (John 19:13) i.e., a place
    paved with a mosaic of coloured stones. It was probably a place
    thus prepared in front of the "judgment hall." (See GABBATHA.)
