I.19.3 Pompeii. September 2005. Entrance doorway, looking south.
According to Beard, a small bronze plaque was found here.
It read – “Lucius Satrius Rufus, imperial secretary (retired).
If it is the name-plate from the door, then this is the only marker so far found in Pompeii.

According to Della Corte, of the two shutters of the entrance door, one held the door-lock.
The other facing the street, had a bronze tablet incised with the name of the house-owner, fixed by four bronze plates.
It read – L. Satri Rufi, evocati Aug(usti)
