The 1953–54 excavations at the south-eastern end of the ancient city brought to light two stretches of defensive walls from the late-imperial period and, behind them, three open areas. These spaces contain remains of small market stalls where goods were sold in the 4th and 5th centuries. The close connection with the nearby river Natisone can be seen from the openings found in the city walls. Clearly, there were moorings where goods were delivered for sale here in this complex.
