It was built under the platform of the House of the Altar at the site. The oven has a circular adobe wall.

Atzompa was a satellite city of Monte Alban used to disperse population from the overcrowded site of Monte Alban. 40 structures have been found there so far including 3 ball courts, one of them, the largest ever found in the Zapotec area.

Trade items from Teotihuacan have also been found there.

Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH) has the story in Spanish with a great slide show and video (click on the tiny red camera and video icons).
