The courtyard is accessible off Vicolo delle Terme.
On the left is the entrance corridor (32) to the praefurnium.
The ramped masonry staircase (35) allows access to the roof of the caldarium.
The circular brick base had a column (34) erected on it after the earthquake, probably to support a sundial.
The smaller arch on the right is entrance (36) to praefurnium (boiler) area.
See Carratelli, G. P. ed., 1990-2003. Pompei: Pitture e Mosaici. Vol. VII. Roma: Istituto della enciclopedia italiana, p. 172. 

Alternative sources, such as Niccolini, have suggested the column is a roof support.
