  Residential buildings or Merchant's House.
by Cristian_Uluru

Along its eastern side, a small lane separated the Merchant's house from the Butcher's house. Visitors and customers arriving from the street could enter the larger entrance hall from which the smaller rooms opened. The posterior part of the house, most probably the private residence of the owner, was separated from the entrance by a large transverse, corridor like hall. Behind it was an enclosed courtyard bordered by living rooms, some with floor-heating. An apsidal wing of the house to the north served as a bath. Fragments of wall-paintings from the collapsed walls found in its heating channel provide evidence of the interior decoration of the building.
