IX.3.2 Pompeii. 19th century drawing of the furnaces. 
According to Moeller, if this drawing is accurate then the restoration of the furnaces in the last decade [he wrote in 1976] was not accurate. 
The number of vats was small and the offector probably dyed manufactured clothing rather than large quantities of washed wool, thus requiring fewer vats.
See Moeller W., 1976. The Wool Trade of Ancient Pompeii. Leiden: Brill, p. 37-9, fig. 4.
