Secondo a Carlo Malandrino –
“Era l’ambiente a temperatura tiepida perche era riscaldato solo dai gas caldi che fluivano atttraverso il pavimento sospeso. Sono visibili le bocchette dell’impianto.”
See Malandrino, Carlo, 1978. “Oplontis” , (p.72).
(translation: It was a room with a warm temperature, because it was only heated by warm air that flowed through the suspended floor. The “suspensurae” under the floor, are visible through a metal grate, and are made up of brick pilasters. ) On p.72, this room according to Malandrino’s plan is described as room 17.
