“Entrambi I due aditi appartenevano ad una caupona, cui era congiunto un thermopolium. La caupona no.20 teneva a destra dell’androne una cella, e poi un cortile con banco di fabbrica per sedere: a sinistra la cucina, la latrina, il pozzo, ed un piccola apotheca, dove rimangono ancora sulle pareti i chiodi di sostegno alle scansie.  Il cortile, o atrio che voglia dirsi, veniva illuminato da un finestra sporgente in un attiguo viridario, il cui ambulacro sottoposto ad un tettoia, conduceva al triclinio, ad un scaletta montante ai cenacoli, e ad altre due celle destinate forse agli avventori.  Addossati ad un angolo del viridario stanno due letti triclinarii di fabbrica, con la loro mensa, e sulla parete accosto è tracciata col carbone, di mezzo a varie epigrafi, una testa muliebre di grandezza maggiore del vero, forse di quella stessa Serena, che forni argomento a varie di queste scritture.  Sulla parete a destra vedesi il sacrario dei Penati, consistente di una nicchia, presso cui è l’immagine di un grosso serpente cristato, che passa fra varie piante e si avvicina ad una mensa, sulla quale stanno imbandite varie frutta ed una pigna: superiormente sono effigiati Bacco e la Fortuna, ai lati dei globo terrestro, cui è adossata la luna crescente sormontata dall’astro, e tutto sotto due festoni di foglia”.

(translation: “Both the two accesses belonged to one caupona, which was joined to the thermopolium. On the right of the entrance doorway to the caupona at no.20 was a room, and then a courtyard with a masonry bench for sitting: on the left, the kitchen, latrine, the well, and a small storeroom, where the nails to support shelving on the walls still remained.  The courtyard, or atrium, was illuminated by a projecting window in an adjoining garden, whose walkway under a roof, led to the triclinium, to a stairway going up to the upper dining rooms, and to another two rooms destined perhaps for the patrons.  Close to a corner of the garden were two masonry triclinium couches, with their table, and on the wall nearby was drawn with charcoal, among various other epigraphs, a head of a woman, larger than life, maybe that of the same Serena that was mentioned in several of these writings.  On the wall to the right, we see the shrine of the Penates, consisting of a niche, near to which was the image of a crested serpent, that passed between various plants while approaching a table, on which were laid out various fruits and a pine-cone: above were the effigies of Bacchus and Fortuna, to the side of the terrestrial globe which was attached to the crescent moon with a star above it, above all were two garlands of foliage”.)

I.2.20 Pompeii. March 2009. Entrance. Looking west along short entrance corridor towards small atrium. According to Fiorelli, there was a painted graffito on the pilaster that divided the two entrances of I.2.20 and I.2.21. This would have been the remains of the pilaster on the left of the picture. It said:
