In Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.3, (the copy at DAIR), Warscher included a description of the insula.

This description is included at the end in all parts of I.3 on the website.

 

“L’isola 3 della Regio I apparteneva ai quartieri piuttosto poveri, ad’esenzione della casa no. 3 tutto le case sono di dimensioni non grandi.

La casa no. 3 presenta un interesse dal punto di vista della costruzione: il peristilio si trova ad un livello più alto di quello dell’atrio:

questa particolarità si riscontra solamente in questa casa.

Noi abbiamo un esempio inverso nella casa dell’Ancora nera ove l’atrio si trova ad un livello più alto di quello del peristilio.

Si sente bene nell’isola in questione la vicinanza dell’anfiteatro da una parte e delle caserme dei gladiatori dall’altra.

Non c’è dubbio che le case nos 23, 25 siano state abitato da gladiatori.

(translation: “Insula 3 of Region I belonged to a rather poor neighbourhood, with the exception of house No. 3 all the houses were not large in size.

The house at no. 3 had a special interest from the point of view of construction: the peristyle sits at a level higher than that of the atrium: this particularity was found only in this house. We have a contrary example in the House of the Black Anchor where the atrium was located at a higher level than that of the peristyle.

The nearness of the amphitheatre on one side and the gladiators' barracks on the other suited well the inhabitants of the insula in question.

There was no doubt that the houses numbered 23, 25 had been inhabited by gladiators.”).
