Summary (English)

  • This season’s research investigated the area south of the southern gallery of the cryptoporticus, in particular room 7 facing onto the road, the area of room 6 adjacent to it on the west side, and the forum area west of the ex SS 78 road.

    In room 7, investigation continued of the remains of a small pottery kiln. This had an elliptical or sub-rectangular plan, with an open central channel and can be attributed to the C5/C6 (ovoid) type in the “Giordani” typology. Two successive phases of use were documented. In room 6 the excavations went down to a surface (US 2618) characterised by a structure (US 2611) made of sandstone basoli, large squared stone blocks and brick/tile, with a small sandstone cippus at the centre.

    In the forum, the excavations continued in sectors 2N and 3 of trench 4.
    In the first case, the area was extended to the north, identifying walls of Republican date that integrated with those already excavated further south. Thus, it was possible to define further the layout and structural characteristics of the area for the period astride the 2nd century B.C.

    In sector 3, later levels were investigated that were connected with the rise in the level of the limestone paving during the last phase of a large building, whose plan was already known and a part of its south-eastern sector excavated.
