Secondo a Carlo Malandrino - In questo ambiente so possono rilevare ben tre stadi di modifiche , nel corso del secondo fu construita un’abside nella parete occidentale (parte in laterizi) ed in quell’occasione, per dare piu spazio a questa nuova opera, fu ristretto simmetricamente l’ambulacro dell’atriolo antistante. Successivamente, tagliando la muratura dell’abside, fu aperta l’attuale porta.
See Malandrino, Carlo, 1978. “Oplontis” (p.72 vedi 16)
(translation: In this room, three stages of changes can be detected, in the course of the second an apse was built in the western wall (partly in brick) and on that occasion, to give more space to this new area, the walkway of the atriolo was restricted symmetrically. Later, cutting the wall of the apse, the actual doorway was opened.)
