Summary (English)

  • During the 2017 campaign, excavation continued in some areas investigated last year (shops/workshops accessible at street numbers. 1, 3, 4) and new excavations were opened inside the accessible rooms at street numbers 7 and 8. In the area of the shop/workshop accessible at street number 1, room 1.2 was investigated where the remains of the stratification relating to its final occupation phases, badly damaged by the 19th century excavations, were identified and excavated. In the area of the shop/workshop accessible from street number 3 (room 3.1) the investigation continued of the remains of a series of timber and mud-brick structures, probably interpretable as latrines, which were built in rapid succession between the late 3rd and the 2nd centuries B.C.

    These structures seemed to be situated in an open area belonging to the large atrium domus present in the northern part of the insula. In the rooms accessible from street number 4, the archaeological cleaning of the surface stratigraphy led to the identification, in the room facing onto the road, of the remains of a timber staircase, which provided access to the upper floor. The presence of the stairs in the final phase of the city’s life, already legible in the negative traces preserved in the eastern perimeter wall of room 4.1, seems confirmed by the charcoal remains recovered during the excavations, which were found in association with a good number of large carpentry nails. In the room immediately behind (room 4.2), the remains of a masonry-built latrine were identified. The contexts investigated in this area (rooms 4.1 and 4.2) both seem to date to within the final phase of the city’s occupation.
