Regio I

Laundry of Stephanus


This laundry (fullonica) is a typical example of a Pompeian “shop-house”, where the shop is on the ground floor and the house is on the upper floor. Clothes were washed, dyed and ironed here. At the entrance we find what remains of a press (pressorium). The impluvium, or pool, in the atrium had been transformed into a tank. Clothes were washed and dyed in small rooms at the bottom of the garden; connected tanks and small tanks  used for pounding can be found there. In fact, the wash soaked into degreasing liquids was pounded with feet (saltus fullonici). A kitchen and a small latrine were at the disposal of the workers.
