Regio III - Insula XVII - Horrea III,XVII,1 and Terme

This store building has been dated to the Hadrianic period (opus mixtum). It was probably privately owned. The main entrance, at the south side, was framed by brick pilasters. Inside are two rows of rooms on either side of a north-south central corridor with a well. The entrances to the rooms are 1.40 wide. The floors are of opus spicatum. In the north wall another entrance was made later. The threshold has a bolt hole and two pivot holes. In a few rooms in the south part of the building a tiny bath suite was built, with mosaic floors, in the fourth century (opus vittatum).
