Regio III - Insula VII - Casa della Domus Fulminata (III,VII,5)

The House of the Domus Fulminata forms an entity with the latter building. It was built in brick, c. 70-75 AD. The ground floor consists of an apartment, that was reached from the street through a long corridor (1). The rooms are connected through four corridors: 3, 4, 8 and 9. The main rooms are G2 and F10. There are three small rooms (5, E11, D12), a latrine with three seats (6), and a staircase (7).

A door connects corridor 3 and section I of the Domus Fulminata. That building was used for funerary meals. In this building the caretaker may have lived. The latrine is rather large for an apartment, which suggests that it was also used during the meals.
