In the eastern part of ancient Poetovio, a trade quarter with large residential buildings, stores, workshops, kilns and courtyards stretched along the Aquileia-Savaria (Aquileia -Szombathely) road. Residences were decorated with frescoes, stuccoes and mosaics, and heated with hypocausts.
The quarter included stonemasons, blacksmiths, glassmakers, potters and brickmakers’ workshops. Lime kilns were also discovered here. Due to the proximity of excellent clay deposits, there was an abundance of pottery and brick workshops with kilns, sheds for drying the products, clay preparation rooms and wells. Of the many brick kilns discovered, a 3rd-century kiln that was used to burn cobblestones, bricks, vessels and oil lamps has been preserved on the site of discovery.
