E5 no''lu dükkânin küçük olmasi ve içinde ilginç ev objelerinin bulunmasi, buranin bir mesken olarak kullanildigina isaret etmektedir. Fevkalade enteresan objeler arasinda, uzun adimlarla yürüyen aslan seklinde, pirinçten yapilmis bir asma kandil ile bir yüzünde üzüm yiyen kazlarin diger yüzünde büyük bir haçin iki yaninda tavsanlarin resmedildigi çift kulplu bir mataraTH!T bulunmaktadir. Ayrica diger ev aletleri arasinda, tokmak ve orak, silah olarak kama ile kiliç, kursun agirliklariyla birlikte bronz el kantari ve çesitli seramik ve metal kaplar yer almaktadir Üzerinde dini bir slogan olan ''Tanri(m) yardim et...'' (kyrie boetheson ton...) yazili mermer levha da burada ortaya çikmistir.

English Text:

The small size and variety of domestic objects found in Shop E5 suggest this unit served as a private residence. Objects of exceptional interest include a brass suspension lamp in the form of a striding lion and a large pottery flask decorated in relief with grazing rabbits and geese flanking crossès. Other household items include iron tools (pounders, sickle), weapons (dagger, sword) a bronze steelyard set with lead weights, and various ceramic and metal vessels. A marble plaque from Shop E5 carries part of a pious slogan: "Lord help...” (kyrie boetheson ton...).
