A kiln with a quadrangular ground plan in which the grid was supported by three or four simple arches. The praefurnium, with an irregular ground plan, was dug in the ground and lined on the interior with a brick wall and an adobe vault. 

During its excavation two praefurnia were identified and related to two different phases of use.

It was possibly used to manufacture terra sigillata.
