The Fountain House
An aqueduct brought water into the site from the north to feed a fountain here. The water flowed through an ornamental fountain-head into a large basin surrounded with decorated stone screens and from there into the stone trough you can see. Years of wear from the overflow of water have left their mark on its sides.
In front of the trough can be seen the street drains which connect with a system of tanks in the compounds on the other side of the street.
