We have removed all of the volcanic materials in this area.

In front of the doorway

It is still unknown why they leaned some roofing tiles and a limestone threshold plate on a wall on top of the layer of volcanic scoriae.

And after the removal of tiles
We found a fragment of the right foot of a marble statue.
