Regio I - Insula XII

The insula is to the east of the southern half of the Forum. It contains some famous buildings: the Terme del Foro (well-published in the 1990's) and the Caseggiato dei Triclini, with Ostia's most famous latrine. The excavation history of the insula (too large to be presented as a single scan) is as complex as the interpretation. Further excavations and detailed investigations will most certainly provide new insights, for example about the Hadrianic baths that were once in the north-east part of the block, and of which only a small segment has been preserved.
