At the western end of the vicus is a well-constructed masonry building
arranged around a narrow courtyard. Once thought to be a mansio, or inn
for travellers, the building is now interpreted as the home of the garrison
commander in the early third century, albeit of an unusual layout (compare
the praetorium in the fort itself). In the foreground is the bathhouse,
the missing flagstones exposing the hypocaust pillars beneath of the hot
room. In the background is the courtyard and ranges of rooms on either
side of it.
