V 1,13 Caupona, Room f
  Page updated: 2011-11-18
DESCRIPTION
The rear room in the caupona, room f, has a large hearth built against the N wall, and two roughly built supports for a table along the E wall.

The room was originally open to Vicolo delle Nozze d’Argento, as is shown by a large closed door behind the hearth. The door was first reduced in size before it was finally closed.

The remains of what could have been a low bench or table, are found close to the door opening to room d. A conduit leads, through the door opening, from this bench to the cistern in room d. Fragments of a terracotta pipe from an upper floor is inserted in the wall by the bench.

Next to the built hearth, in the NE corner, is a well from an earlier phase. When partly emptied of AD 79 pumice, Early Bronze Age material was found inside it.

Maximera COMMENTS
The room was originally an entrance room from Vicolo delle Nozze d’Argento, and the reconstruction of the house in its earlier phases is different from the present layout.
