Residential Sructure

The ruins of an entire ancient residential structure were found during construction works of a residential building near Kapitan Raicho Str. Within the insula were found five residential buildings with common walls, one next to another.

The residential houses entrances were from the side of the street. Most likely behind these five buildings were located another five and their entrances were from the side of the street parallel to the revealed one.

The house plans were similar. Most of them were organized around a vestibule or passage through which the access to the rest of the rooms was provided. Some of the premises had separate entrances. Most likely, these rooms were craft workshops and shops.

Today the ruins of these houses cannot be seen.
