According to Wilhelmina, writing about a hole discovered in the garden of I.15.3, 
“When the heavy growth had been cleaned from the hole, it was noticed that the hole had a yellow colour, which it was thought may have been potter’s clay, but of a quality that would have required much work to refine it. It may have been the source of the clay used at the nearby lamp and dice box factory. Prof. Cerulli Irelli  had taken them to see this small factory which she had been studying. The moulds in which the lamps were made, the finished lamps, and the kiln in which they would have been fired were all seen.  The lamps had all types of decoration such as deities, birds and plants. Wilhelmina especially liked the one of a small cupid trudging along, carrying two huge baskets of produce, perhaps grapes, hanging from a pole resting on his shoulders.”
