Regio II - Insula IX - Ninfeo II,IX,1

In the south-east corner of block II,IX, facing the Decumanus, are the remains of a nymphaeum (7.70 x 3.10). It was built in opus latericium and may be Antonine. In the centre a base was found. The wall is articulated through pilasters, and was decorated with marble. Behind the nymphaeum several basins were found. The nymphaeum was excavated in 1913.
