In the course of archaeological investigations of the villa with peristyle in 2010 and 2011, a room of circular plan in the north-western segment of the villa and to the north of room w-24, was discovered. The room had annexes in the east and west and is analogous to the stibadium A discovered in the north-eastern section of the villa. Further investigations of the room called stibadium B revealed that the stibadium walls were decorated with a facing of marble slabs and the floor was covered with exceptionally well preserved high quality mosaic. Archaeological excavations in 2015 defined completely the system of floor and wall heating. The mosaic floors in stibadium B are conserved. The area to the west of the stibadium has also been explored and a channel with the remains of a lead water pipe was discovered there. The terrain to the north of the northern wall of the villa with peristyle was also levelled.
