Summary (English)

  • Although the complete plan of the house is not yet known, to date circa twenty rooms have been identified. The main entrance was probably situated on the ancient via Gemina, indicated by some as the ancient town’s decumanus maximus, situated south of the modern road. The house probably had reception rooms with a high standard of decoration, beside which was the “private” part of the house arranged around a small portico. From here access was gained to the service rooms and a large kitchen situsted next to the heated rooms of a bath suite. The plan of the late antique house, which probably occupied the entire insula, seems to have partially altered the latter’s original layout. In fact, although the insula maintained its original perimeter, the internal road network changed, further evidence of the late antique phenomenon which saw private property encroaching on the urban layout.
