English Text:

The shops flanking the side entrance to the Bath may have functioned as restaurants or taverns. Excavation of Shop W1-2 found two cooking hearths and dishes for serving food. An L-shaped masonry bench built outside the main door to Shop W2 provided customers with overflow seating in the shaded portico. A double-seat latrine was installed in the unit's opposite corner. On the opposite side of the Bath entrance, Shop E1-2 contained ceramic and glass dining vessels, storage containers, animal bones, and shells. Small drains or water tanks in both rooms seem to have provided places for washing. Wide windows in the southeast corner of E1 may have served for passing food to customers standing in the portico. Crosses and part of a Christian name ("of Kyriakos") incised on two ceramic vessels, together with the presence of pig bones and shell's, suggest that the shop was owned or supported by Christian members of the community.
