According to Fiorelli, the L-shaped counter would have had two urns and a hearth, and not one urn, as now seen. See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875).

I.2.8 Pompeii. 1935 photo taken by Tatiana Warscher. Looking north-west across bar-counters towards north wall with niche. Warscher described –
I.2.8 “una taberna col podio continente due urne altre il focolaio, ed altro podio da un lato, in qui stanno infisse tre urne di maggiore dimensione: 
un muro divideva questo primo compreso da un secundo più interno, ove sembra fossero collocati due letti, e serviva anche di sostegno ad una scala, che portava alle stanze sovrapposte”.
See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (after no.20), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.

Warscher described –

I.2.8 “una taberna col podio continente due urne altre il focolaio, ed altro podio da un lato, in qui stanno infisse tre urne di maggiore dimensione:

un muro divideva questo primo compreso da un secundo più interno, ove sembra fossero collocati due letti, e serviva anche di sostegno ad una scala, che portava alle stanze sovrapposte”.

See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (no.20), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.

(translation: I. 2.8 "a workshop with podium containing two urns and also the hearth, and another podium by the side, in which there were three more larger urns: a wall divided this first area from a second inner area, where it seemed two beds were placed, and also served to support a ladder, leading to the rooms above".)

 

In Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2, (the copy at DAIR), Warscher included Viola’s description of the insula, from

Gli scavi di Pompei dal 1873 al 1878, p.10 (Pompei e la regione sotterrata dal Vesuvio nell’anno 1879, Seconda parte.

This is included at the end in all parts of I.2 on the website.

 

“Nel dicembre del 1873 incomminciò lo scavo di questa isola – quale dovette essere abitata da moltissime persone. Infatti non si vede grande lusso di abitazioni, nè grandi locali, ove i ricchi pompeiani passavano la vita nell’ozio e nel piacere; si può invece osservare grand’economia di spazio, case piccole miste a botteghe e ad officine, onde non è difficile argomentare che quivi abitarono persone del ceto medio, le quali benchè agiate non godevano certamente della più splendide posizione.

 

E’ questa un’isola dove avennero frequentissime trasformazioni, per cui riesce difficillissimo intravvedere qual’era la sua forma primiera; non mancano però degli avanzi di costruzioni primitive, insieme ad altri di epoca posteriore, come si osserva in molti luoghi di Pompei.

 

La sua area è di mq.2948, ed è limitata da occidente dal cardo, a settentrione dalla via secunda, ad oriente dal vico parallelo al cardo e a mezzogiorno dalla via tertia che la separa dalle isole 1 e 5; il margine che la fiancheggia da tre lati escluso l’orientale e sulla via tertia di fronte al vano No.28 si vede un piccolo ponte, formato da massi posti a contrasto, il quale serve per unire i due margine (vedi la fotografia no.42c)”.

(Note: photo (no.42c) can be seen at I.5.1, I.2.28 and in the “streets” section under Vicolo del Conciapelle). 

See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. Rome: DAIR.

 

(translation: "In December of 1873 the excavation of this insula began – which would have been inhabited by many people. In fact you don't see great luxury homes, nor large rooms, where rich Pompeian passed life in idleness and pleasure; if you instead look at the great economy of space, small homes and shops mixed with workshops, it's not difficult to argue that here lived people in the middle class, which however well-to-do they certainly did not enjoy the most splendid position.

This was an insula where there were frequent transformations, for which it is difficult to glimpse what was the original form; it does not lack however, the remains of primitive constructions, alongside others of a later date, as can be seen in many places in Pompeii.

Its area was 2948 sq. m., and was bounded on the west by the “cardo”, on the north by via secunda, and east by a parallel vicolo to the “cardo” and in the south by the via tertia, that separated it from Insula’s 1 and 5:  the border that flanked it by three sides excluding the east and on via tertia opposite No. 28, you will see a small bridge, formed by a boulder placed to serve to unite the two edges, (see photo No. 42 c)."
