Regio II - Insula VIII - Caseggiato II,VIII,7

This seems to have been an industrial building, like buildings II,VIII,8 and 9. It is to the north and west of the Four Small Temples (II,VIII,2).It was excavated in the years 1885-1886 by Lanciani. An oval structure in the east part may have been a basin. In the south part a long basin is found (5.30 x 0.68), that had marble revetment on the inside. The building is probably Hadrianic. It has been suggested that it was a fulling mill.
