Abstract :
The analysis of the finds discovered in the channel of the Smaller Baths’ toilet made the stratigrapy clearer; furthermore, it shed light on the room’s marble decoration. Many crustae were found, some of them relating to the floor. Indeed, its pattern can be reconstructed by means of a comparison. Other inlays probably concern the wall decoration; they are characterized part by geometric patterns, part by curvilinear foliage ones. Two pieces stand out from all the rest. One of them is a white marble wing, which could belong to a little bird or a winged head deity such as Hermes. The other one is a game board, engraved on a marble slab.
