Herculaneum IV.5. Workroom/Shop linked to atrium of IV.6, Casa della Fullonica.

 

According to Maiuri, this was a modest dwelling, perhaps inhabited by a family of shopkeepers or artisans. The front part was used for the exercise of the business and the more private rear portion formed the living quarters. On one side of the entrance corridor is a simple workroom, IV.5, and on the other a shop IV.7.
