V 1,31 Taberna, Room 2
Mats Holmlund Page updated: 2015-12-06
DESCRIPTION
Room 2 is a circa 11 square meters large retrobottega and it occupies the southeast corner of the taberna. The room is square shaped and can either be entered from room 1, through an approximately 1.60 m wide door in the west wall, or from room 3, through a circa 0.60 m wide door in the north wall.

The walls and the floor of the room seem to be largely intact. However, the south wall and the southern part of the west wall were probably rebuilt during Imperial times, supposedly after the earthquake of 62 A.D.

The room is almost devoid of features. There’s a modern, protective roof above the south wall (only the first floor). The roof was most likely built to protect the remaining wall plaster on the south wall, a part of the east wall and the southern part of the west wall. Below the floor there’s a water conduit entering from room 6 in V.1,3, exiting through the door to room 1 and ending in the (vault shaped) cistern of room 1.

There is an upper floor of room 2, but as was the case in room 1, there are no remnants or signs of a staircase. The upper floor of room 2 spanned both room 2 and 3, as indicated by the fact that the entrance to/from room 6 in V.1,3 is located exactly above the partition wall between room 2 and 3.
