Inscription.  English:
The Taberna II (Shop II) of Terrace House 2 was built over a fountain installation from the 3rd century B.C. The east, south and west walls, constructed of marble blocks, are preserved. Above the socle zone, a water channel and traces of the broken lion-head spouts can be seen. Chronologically and with regard to construction technique this fountain is similar to the fountain house near the Theatre. The flight of steps to the west was built over the remains of a little hexagonal memorial or tomb monument. A late antique workshop lıes behind it, with three relief slabs of the 'Parthian Monument' built into its façade.
