English Text:

The two-room shop at W8-9 may have been used for the preparation and sale of dyes and paints. Both rooms were directly accessible from the portico. The smaller space (W9) was paved with tiles and may have been used for storage. The larger room (W8) was partly paved with stone slabs and terracotta tiles. A stone mortar may have been used for grinding pigments. In the room's northeast corner stood a water tank made of two reused marble slabs, a gravestone and a honorific stele of the 2nd century. Large crosses incised on the front of both slabs express the sentiments of the Christian owner and his interest in protecting his water supply.
