English term or phrase: a cistern lined with hydraulic stucco
En met deze heb ik ook moeite. Alvast bedankt!
Behind the south side of the hearth there is a small poros bench with an oblong cutting in the middle, which contained the lower part of a poros plug, undoubtedly part of a relief or statuette relating to cult practice at the hearth. A U-shaped built bench surrounding the hearth was attached to the wall; it was probably used as a seat by the inhabitants. Also uncovered were a storeroom, *a cistern lined with hydraulic stucco* and stone paved streets, one of which separates two neighbourhoods. Among the most important finds is a series of coins cut by this city, which had its own mint.

Dutch translation:een waterresevoir met hydraulisch pleisterwerk
Explanation:
een waterresevoir met hydraulisch pleisterwerk

De toevoeging van hydraulisch bij de naam bindmiddelen heeft te maken met het feit dat de producten bij aanwezigheid van water verharden om vervolgens een steenachtige massa te vormen en deze verbinding op zichzelf is weer waterbestendig.
