Spanish term or phrase: arqueta
"La fama de las aguas mineromedicinales de esta zona viene de viejo. Ya en la época romana se conocían sus excelentes propiedades. De esos restos romanos aún se conserva, en las instalaciones actuales, una antigua **arqueta***. Los baños fueron redescubiertos en el siglo XVIII y, gracias a eso, el balneario es hoy lo que es. Corría el año 1716 cuando un vecino de la zona quiso indagar qué sucedía en aquel lugar del que salían extraños vapores. No encontró el tesoro que esperaba, pero sí los restos de una manantial de aguas mineromedicinales. "

He localizado varios términos para arqueta (manhole, sink, disposal unit...) no sé cuál sería el término correcto en este caso.
¿Alguna sugerencia?

¡Gracias!
