Vicolo dei Soprastanti, north side, May 2010. Looking east between VII.5 and VII.8, from junction with Vicolo delle Terme.
During the Spring of 1986, excavations were carried out in the roadway. Two wells were found on Vicolo dei Soprastanti, and one in the adjoining roadway of Vicolo delle Terme. The two found on Vicolo dei Soprastanti could thus be added to the list of sources of water supply so far known to the area of the Forum. At the crossroads between the Vicolo dei Soprastanti and the Vicolo delle Terme, the well was found immediately below the road surface.  The mouth of it was obstructed by a large block, which was covered by the road pavement.  Due to this, further exploration was difficult, however the well appeared to be circular in shape and having a diameter of about 60 cm, a depth of at least 12metres, and the walls covered with regular rows of stone blocks. The second well, which was found on Vicolo dei Soprastanti, was located in the roadway at the rear of the Temple of Jupiter.
