Herculaneum Ins. Or. II.15. Workshop.

 

According to Maiuri, no.15 was a workshop of an artisan.

See Maiuri, Amedeo, (1977). Herculaneum. 7th English ed, of Guide books to the Museums Galleries and Monuments of Italy, No.53 (p.57).

 

Guidobaldi wrote that this was a shop with dwelling quarters, but originally it would have been a back-door of the Palaestra.

See Guidobaldi, M.P, 2009: Ercolano, guida agli scavi. Naples, Electa Napoli, (p49.).
