I.4.26 Pompeii. Workshop of wool shop of Dionysius.

Officina lanifricaria of Dionysius. Excavated 1858 and 1867.

 

I.4.26 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance, looking south. In the south-west corner of the workshop, upon excavation there were the remains of a hearth or basin. The doorway on the left leads to the large drying? room.   Fiorelli said that near to the doorway, one could read:
L . POPIDIVM . SECVNDVM
     AED .DIONYSIVS . L . ROGAT
M . CASELLIVM
See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.43)

According to Della Corte, the artisan Dionysius, established here, was not only tenant, but freedman of the proprietor. This he thought, as a result of these programmes written all to the left of the entrance:
L.  Popidium  L.  f.  Aed,  o. v. f.  
Dionysius  fullo  rog(at)  liber(tus)  [CIL IV 2966]
L.  Popidius  Secundum  
aed., Dionysius  l(ibertus)  rog(at)  [CIL IV 1041]
L.  Popidium  Secundum  
aedilem,  Pop(idi)us    
(Donysius)  rogat   [CIL IV 1045]
L. Popidium  aed.  Dionysius  rog(at).  Infans,  dormis  et  cupis ?  [CIL IV 2974]
