Jashemski thought that this site, (excavated in 1874) and already destroyed in antiquity, had probably been a hospitium.

Possibly, the watering trough is the one in the garden of I.5.2, on the south-west corner of this rear wall.

I.5.3 Pompeii.1936, taken by Tatiana Warscher. Niche in west wall of large open area.
Warscher described this as “Nicchia dei penati nel muro ovest della stanza “a”. She also noted “Del piccolo muro o forse d’una specie d’impluvio che e marcato sulla pianta io non ho trovato nessuna traccia”
(this translated as – Niche for worshipping the household gods in the west wall of room “a”.
Of the small wall, or perhaps a type of impluvium, that is marked on the plan, I have not found any trace”.

This extract from Tatiana Warscher’s “Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.1, I.5” (1936) appears at the end of all the properties in I.5 on this website.

 

Warscher quoting Mau in Bull. Inst.1875, p.25, described Vicolo del Conciapelle as via tertia, -

“L’insula 5 della Regione I è quasi tutta occupata dalla conceria. Fuori di essa non vi è che il compreso rozzo sul lato E ed una bottega con tre camere sul cantone NO”

 

(Translation: Insula 5 of Region I was nearly all occupied by a tannery. Outside of this, there was nothing other than a coarse complex on its east side, and a shop with three rooms in the north-west corner of the insula).

 

Quoting Sogliano in Giorn, Sc. III, no.21, 1874, p.8, she wrote –

“Chiameremo 5 per l’ordine cronologico dei cavamenti quest’isola della I Regione, la quale per essere parallela e vicina alla I doverebbe piuttosto dirsi 2. 

Considerando la parte finora scoverta, osserviamo a prima vista che la sua costruzione offre in taluni punti grandi lastre del tufo di Sarno, in altri quello di Nocera, e per lo più l’opus incertum.

I tre vicoli, che rasentano ad oriente, settentrione ed occidente, non sono lastricati; il settentrionale è accessibile solo per i due altri margines, ricongiunti nel mezzo di esso da un piccolo ponte in fabbrica. 

Quest’isola, per la sua situazione presso la porta Stabiana e per la sua località, sembra sia stata abitata in gran parte da persone viventi col commercio e coll’industria”.

See Warscher T., 1936. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.1, I.5. Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.

 

(Translation: we will call insula 5 for the chronological order of the excavating of this insula of Region I, which being parallel and near to insula 1, should rather be called 2.

Considering the part already excavated, we see at first glance that its construction offers in some places large slabs of Sarno tufa, Nocera tufa in other places, and mostly opus incertum.

The three vicoli, that border to the East, North and West, are not paved; the North was accessible only by its two other sides, reuniting in the middle of it by a small masonry bridge.

This insula, for its situation near the Stabian Gate and due to its location, seems to have been inhabited largely by persons living with commerce and industry.")
