    Summary (English)

    • During the 2018 campaign, research continued in the shops/workshops accessible from street numbers 1 and 2 and 8. Inside the shop/workshop at street number 1 (room 1.2) the excavations exposed patches of stratigraphy datable to between the late 1st century B.C. and 79 A.D. It attested the area’s radical transformation of use, which also involved a clear rise in the floor levels. This operation was undertaken through the accumulation of several substantial layers of earth and building rubble. The materials found within this context are being studied at present. In the area of shop/workshop at street number 2, the excavation continued in room 2.1, uncovering traces of structures in light materials, probably relating to the final occupation phases of the shop/workshop. At the same time work continued inside room 2.3 inside which a small masonry-built latrine had been installed in 79 A.D. Via a terracotta tube still preserved in the north wall of room 2.3, the sump for this structure was connected to a second latrine, which must have been situated on the upper floor. The investigations inside the shop/workshop accessible from street number 8, were concentrated in the entrance (room 8.1) and revealed parts of several walls. The latter probably constitute evidence of the layout of the shop/workshop in the period preceding the series of earthquakes that struck the city during the 60s A.D.
