Pompeii Public Buildings.

Note:

Some buildings have had several names attributed to them and thus will appear in the list several times.

The links on this page group together buildings which are found in separate parts of Pompeii.

The “back” and “next” menu buttons will work in the normal way and will go to the building next door, which may not be what you want.

You should use the back button on your browser or the “Public buildings” button to get back to this page.

Whether all these building were in public use is uncertain.

Dobbins, John, and Foss, Pedar. 2007. The World of Pompeii. London: Routledge

This is one of the best overall introductions.

It has chapters by a wide range of specialists, and it includes an excellent Glossary, pp. 637–48, and detailed notes and (usually) further bibliographies at the end of each chapter.

Useful chapters include Part II, “The Community”, Chapters 9–16, pp. 119–266, and Chapter 37, pp. 585–606, which cover most of the public buildings.

There is a supporting website, at http://quemdixerechaos.com/pompeii/. It includes many links to other websites. The site is being updated and Pedar Foss is revising the website general Bibliography.

 

Lawrence, Ray. 2 ed., 2007. Roman Pompeii. Space and Society. London: Routledge

This is another very useful starter with some provoking use of statistics. Chapter 2, “Reshaping Public Space”, pp. 20–38, is likely to be useful for public buildings.

This has a lot of material on roads in Pompeii and some on the Forum and a very extensive Bibliography.

This clearly is relevant to the Amphitheatre and the Quadriporticus of the Theatre and has a particularly well organised Bibliography.

Sear, Frank. 2006. Roman Theatres. An Architectural Study. Oxford UP.

This is a survey of all Roman theatres, discussing various aspects of them and of similar buildings, including amphitheatres, pp. 1–115.

In the Catalogue it includes sections about the two theatres in Pompeii on pp. 130–2.

It is well supplied with plans and references.

 

Bomgardner, D. L. 2000. The Story of the Roman Amphitheatre. London: Routledge.

This is a wide study of amphitheatres, including that in Pompeii and the Quadriporticus of the Theatre, which seems to have been a training place for gladiators in the latest period; pp. 39–58. There is a wide range of related comparative material.

It is well supplied with drawings and black-and-white photographs (as was the standard then) and has an extensive section of Notes and a Bibliography.

 

Connolly, Peter. 1979. Pompeii. London: Macdonald Educational; from 1990 Oxford UP

This is an excellent basic introduction to many of the public monuments except religious ones.

Its hand-drawn colour illustrations and reconstructions are outstanding and are all based on sound surviving archaeological and literary evidence. There is no bibliography.

 

Nappo, Salvatore. 1998. Pompeii. A Guide to the Ancient City. New York: Barnes & Noble.

This is another basic introduction, more extensive than Connolly and including religious sites, but also lacking a bibliography.

The illustrations are quite good, but the glossary is unhelpful.

 

Capasso, Gaetano. 2003 and later. Journey to Pompeii. Napoli: Ottaviano, Capware.

This includes a DVD, and shows interesting and often plausible computer reconstructions of various parts of the city, which he has since developed into the MAV (Museo di Archeologia Virtuale).

This is close to the entrance to the excavations at Herculaneum and well worth a visit: http://www.museomav.it/index.php?lang=en

Soprintendenza speciale per i beni Archeologici di Napoli e Pompei

http://www.pompeiisites.org/

This is the official Pompeii site for the Soprintendenza speciale per i beni Archeologici di Napoli e Pompei, often referred to as SANP (and previously SAP).

This is the government body responsible for the maintenance of historic monuments in Italy.

The site is in Italian and English and concentrates on the more spectacular tourist parts, but in doing so mentions some of the public buildings.

It includes a few photos and movies and very basic notes, but well below the level that you may require.

 

La Fortuna Visiva di Pompei - Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa

http://pompei.sns.it/prado_front_end/index.php?page=Home&id=1

La Fortuna Visiva di Pompei is an archive for images and text from 1748 to the early 20th century.

It is supported by the SANP and other institutions such as the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI) contribute material.

It is in Italian and English.

 

National Archaeological Museum in Naples

http://cir.campania.beniculturali.it/museoarcheologiconazionale

This is the official Soprintendenza site for the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.

There is a search facility, which is only accessible from the Home page.

Using the Italian pages produces better results, though some pages are available in English by clicking on the GB flag at the top right of each page.

It concentrates on art, sculpture, and small finds, some of which may have been found in public buildings and may not very helpful for your purposes.

It has themed collections which can be browsed.

For Pompeii see http://cir.campania.beniculturali.it/museoarcheologiconazionale/itinerari-tematici/nel-museo/collezioni-pompeiane

The Museum itself is very good and well worth a visit as the best material from Pompeii and neighbouring sites is collected here.

However, some of the best illustrations of material from here can be found in Wikimedia Commons

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Museo_Nazionale_di_Napoli

These all art and artistic small finds. Many have already been put back into their original find locations on pompeiiinpictures.

There are photographs here of the two large cork models of Pompeii, which show it as it was, with its decorations, in the 19th century.

 

Items in the Pompeii deposits

This a new category on Wikimedia and is still being built up.

It contains items that are under the control of the Soprintendenza rather than Naples Museum.

Museum collections are increasingly using a Creative Commons approach allowing non-commercial use of their material.

This is unfortunately not always the case, particularly if a third party owns the copyright, and each country has different laws.

Blogging Pompeii

http://bloggingpompeii.blogspot.co.uk/

The latest news tends to appear on Blogging Pompeii first, but it is sometimes in Italian. You may need to use Google Translate.

It is one of the most useful and interesting sites on Pompeii and its neighbourhood, and it is updated fairly frequently.

It includes courses, notices and reviews of new publications, whether books, articles or on-line material.

It goes back as far as December 2008, and so it is useful for finding the most recent material, supplementing that in recently published books. Its Search facility may turn up useful material for you, and you can register and send requests for information.

 

Pompeiiinpictures

http://www.pompeiiinpictures.org/ and www.pompeiiinpictures.com

There is simply no parallel to Pompeii in Pictures’ virtually complete photographic cover of Pompeii.

There is a search facility, which works on the page text and photo captions, and so the results depend on what has been put there.

The quality and resolution of the photographs as published is only medium, but we do have the originals of much higher quality.

Contact us if you have a particular need or query.

All the relevant buildings are covered under their region and insula. In addition this page groups together all the “public” buildings.

There are on-line copies of Michael’s paper on Roman Personal Names and a Glossary that he prepared for his students.

 

Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia

http://classics.uc.edu/pompeii/index.php/home.html

This is Stephen Ellis’s site. He runs a long-term dig beside the theatres and by the Porta di Stabia.

There is a wide range of well indexed material here and an excellent set of links.

 

Pompeiana.org

http://pompeiana.org/Research/Research.htm

This is an online resource for Pompeian material.

 

FastiOnline

http://www.fastionline.org/

This is a database of archaeological excavations since the year 2000 and contains many papers of interest.

 

Wikipedia, Wikimedia, Wiktionary

http://www.wikipedia.org/ You can choose your language.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Main_Page

There is a lot of good stuff in the various parts of Wikipedia: there are often good summaries, a few illustrations, and the source references.

Clearly the quality of the content needs careful checking: do ask your supervisor if you are uncertain. It all depends on who wrote the material.

There are some good photos on it too, but cover can be patchy.

Its sister site, Wikimedia Commons, often has many more illustrations of high technical quality taken both by amateur and by professional photographers.

They are very unlikely to be archaeologists, and the captions may be unhelpful, missing, or wrong.

These two are public domain sites, but your source must always be stated.

Wiktionary can be helpful tracking down the meaning of obscure words or words that online translation software cannot fathom.

 

Arachne

http://arachne.uni-koeln.de/

Arachne is the database of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and the Archaeological Institute of the University of Cologne.

It is administrated by Prof. Dr. Reinhard Förtsch of the Universität zu Köln.

It provides archaeologists and classicists with a free internet research tool for quickly searching hundreds of thousands of records on objects and their attributes.

There is an ongoing process of digitizing traditional documentation (which are both threatened by decay and largely unexplored).

It contains many books, old paintings, drawings and photos collected by the DAI and not available elsehwere.

You can access the material without a login, but it will be in lower resolution.

If you register with Arachne (free) you can get higher resolution and also download material.

Pompeii Forum Project

http://hitchcock.itc.virginia.edu/Pompeii/

This is the entry to the Pompeii Forum Project site, run by John Dobbins.

There is useful material on several topics, including the Forum itself and various surrounding public buildings, and there is much interesting and relevant material here.

A useful starter to theatres and amphitheatres.

 

The Maecenas site

http://wings.buffalo.edu/AandL/Maecenas/italy_except_rome_and_sicily/pompeii/thumbnails_contents.html

The site has quite a lot of pictures of Pompeii taken 25 years ago on 35mm film and scanned in, and so the colours and the definition are variable.

 

The Excavations at Pompeii by the University of Helsinki, EPUH.

http://blogs.helsinki.fi/pompeii-project/

It includes a vast Bibliography section, which is beyond your likely needs and is not kept up to date anyway.

Their work does not include any public sites, but it is well worth a look at what they are doing.

If you scroll down the first page, you will find an “Area Descriptions” section with links to several sites of relevance: their area of interest was the area around the Forum.

Note that their “Arc” really means “Arch” and “Project Hierarchy” is their term for “Sites illustrated”.

There are links to drawings, photographs, and videos, initially of low definition, but you can access higher definition material by a log-in.

Their work on Pompeii seems to have stopped in 2006.

 

Other Pompeii sites

There are many other Pompeii sites which you can find by searching the Internet.

Whilst pompeiiinpictures is the most comprehensive coverage of Pompeii you may find specialist sites on an individual building or theme.

 

Searching

Be prepared to search using the same words in several different languages.

Many countries have ruled or researched Pompeii and material is often in their native language and sometimes in an antique or obsolete form of that language.

Pompeii for example may be Pompei, Pompeji, Pompéi, Pompeii, Pompeya, Помпеи.

Theatre may be teatro, Theater, théâtre, theatre (UK) or theater (US), teatro, театр.

[Italian, German, French, English, Spanish, Russian]

Other stratagems are to try alternative names for sites and features and to be prepared to think sideways. American sites, for example, will have spellings and terminology different from the “real” English that you will be expected to use in your UK work.
