Herculaneum Ins. Or. II.5. Workshop, dye-shop, officina tinctoria.

Excavated 1932-1941.

 

According to Maiuri, this workshop, perhaps a dye-works with a furnace made by removing the bottom from a dolium and cementing it to a stove. There is a rear-room, above which is a mezzanine and an upper floor.

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 tintoria with dwelling on the upper floor.

See Guidobaldi, M.P, 2009: Ercolano, guida agli scavi. Naples, Electa Napoli, (p.49).

 

According to Wallace-Hadrill, the taberna at number 5 is a dye-shop, officina tinctoria, with a great dolium or storage jar walled into position for the dye-vat, and a latrine in the corner.
