A kiln with a quadrangular ground plan in which the grid (of which nothing remains) was probably supported by three arches. With respect to its construction system, the kiln was delimited by walls made of tegulae and bricks, lined on the interior with adobe and paved with fired clay.

It was probably used to fire common ware and fine tableware.
