We have previously written about what looked like a fountain in the northern part of our excavation area. With today’s work, we can now say that the fountain is part of the water features of a small pool (1.67×1.67m). It is one of now two plastered pools in this part of the dig and may suggest that we have come upon a private bathing facility. We have not reached the bottom of the pool, yet. But some of the team have their water toys at the ready.
