W1-2 no''lu dükkânin kazisinda iki adet ocak yeri ve yiyecek kaplari elde edilmistir. W2 no''lu dükkânin ana girisi disinda taslarla örülmüs L-seklindeki alçak bir bank, müsterilere, revagin gölgesinde oturacak yer imkâni saglamistir. Unitenin karsi kösesine, çifte oturakli bir tuvalet yerlestirilmistir. Hamam girisinin diger yanindaki E1-2 no lu dükkanda seramik ve cam yemek takimlari, muhafaza kaplari, hayvan kemikleri ve deniz kabuklari ortaya çikarilmistir. Her iki mekânda yer alan küçük depolar ve su giderleri yikama olanagi saglamistir. E1''in güneybati kenarindaki büyükçe pencereden, muhtemelen disarida revagin altinda bekleyen müsterilere yiyecek servisi yapiliyordu Üzerlerinde haçlar ve kismen Hristiyan ismi olan (Kyriakos''un") adinin kazinmis oldugu iki adet seramik kap ile domuz kemikleri ve deniz kabuklarinin mevcudiyeti, dükkân sahibinin Hristiyan oldugu ya da mekânin Hristiyan cemaat tarafindan kullanildigi fikrini uyandirir.

masonry bench built outside the main door to Shop W2 provided customers with overflow seating in the shaded portico. A double-seat latrine was installed in the unit''s opposite corner. On the opposite side of the Bath entrance, Shop E1-2 contained ceramic and glass dining vessels, storage containers, animal bones, and shells. Small drains or water tanks in both rooms seem to have provided places for washing. Wide windows in the southeast corner of E1 may have served for passing food to customers standing in the portico. Crosses and part of a Christian name ("of Kyriakos") incised on two ceramic vessels, together with the presence of pig bones and shell''s, suggest that the shop was owned or supported by Christian members of the community.
