 Rear of entrance room looking north towards doorway to room, possibly a dormitory.  According to Fiorelli, the site of a stable manger was against the wall. The wall was a painted wall giving him the impression that originally the hospitium had seen better days. The doorway to the area used as the stable can be seen on the right.
