About a house.

Near there are the unctorium, hypocaustum, furnace, and basin
Explanation:
Do not translate unct. and hypoc.,as they were parts of the Roman house and a translation does not exist.
I don't know what fornax was intended for, but furnace is a general term
Thesame for piscina: it could be both a swimming pool and a pond for fishes, but basin is a general term.
Good luck!
