Excavated 1853 and 1863. (Strada Stabiana 98).

 

I.4.11 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance. According to Della Corte, this was a small shop furnished with two rooms for the clients, and with a small garden.  He jokes the shop was modest, but very promising for the clients, as the name of the owner was thought to be Copiosus. This name was shown in the graffiti found to the right of the entrance:
Sittium Magnum a[aed(ilem)] o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis)
Copiosus rogat   (CIL IV 989)
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p. 263)

On the pilaster on the left side, between I.4.12 and I.4.11, the following painted graffiti were found in May 1853.
Painted in black or red, they were:

A(ulum) Postumium aed(ilem)

According to Boyce, on the north wall of the rear room was a lararium painting.  He described the Genius pouring a libation upon an altar; on each side of him stood a Lar. Below him was the painted altar with the two serpents. Below that was a masonry altar.
