During its existence, the "Clos de la Lombarde" saw the  establishment of various artisanal workshops whose  remnants were found during the excavations.  It was an establishment for preparing, treating or cleaning textiles. Its remnants are at the northwestern end of street C. It dates from the third century AD.  At this time the neighboring House with the Porticoes had already been abandoned. Two basins, each measuring 3.50 m3, had been dug on the right hand side of street C. They were coated with a tile mortar and had sealing beads. The wastewater sewers there are very corroded, as  the fullers used very acidic liquids such as urine. These sewers ran into the main collector of Street C. Bassin In the south-east part of the city block, six basins, carefully paved with an opus spicatum made of bricks, coated with waterproof mortar and with sealing beads, were found. An important layer of oyster shells and pectens was discovered in the north-east of the city. These elements suggest that this establishment could have been a garum factory identical to that found on the archaeological site of Ampurias in Catalonia. This establishment ceased to function at the end of the 1st century AD. Vue générale Le puits Un des six bassins Opus spicatum
