Summary (English)

  • Behind the pistrinum the remains of a mid-imperial kiln came to light, built on top of late Republican structures.
    A complex of rectangular narrow cells identified below the pistrinum were also excavated. The cells opened onto four corridors at right angles to each other, probably to be identified with the horreum publicum of the late Republican colony. The walls of one of the cells showed traces of painting.

    The cardo of Via S. Procolo, linked to the decumanus of Via Duomo was also uncovered. To the west it was flanked by a taberna, to the east by the perimeter of an insula. The road was paved with limestone basoli and numerous reused marble fragments, including an honororific inscription mentioning Antoninus Pius. The stratigraphy revealed that the basoli overlay mid-imperial levels.

    A tabernum was discovered along the decumanus of Via Duomo, with a back room and vaulted stairway leading down to a complex of cuniculi for water provision. On one wall the remains of a fresco depicting an Agathodemon snake was preserved.
    Further west were other shops with painted wall plaster. Built in the late Republican period they were restructured in the Imperial period and finally obliterated in the 13th-14th century by a dump of architectural marbles which probably came from one of the buildings facing onto the square in front of the Temple of Augustus. Of note amongst these were inscriptions mentioning the Julio-Claudian emperors, Trajan and the praetorian of Antoninus Pius and a headless draped statue of a woman.

    A small room situated along the decumanus of Via Duomo was also excavated. Of late Republican date this was perhaps a cubiculum that had later been transformed into a lararium, created on the upper storey of one of the tabernae.

    Lastly, on the northern ridge, excavations were renewed on the complex of cryptoporticae which formed a substructure to the hill. Their presence attests the fact that in the Augustan or Julio-Claudian period this side of the hill top was no longer surrounded by walls. The cryptoporticae, on a north-south alignment, had opus mixtum walls and opus caementicium barrel vaults.
