 II.4.6 Pompeii. December 2005. Main entrance to the house at II.4.6 on Via dell’ Abbondanza. Looking east. According to Della Corte, found on the right (west side) of the principal and monumental doorway, was the famous CIL IV 1136 –
In  Praediis  Iuliae  Sp.  f.  Felicis
locantur  Balneum  Venerium  et  Nongentum  tabernae  pergulae
caenacula  ex  idibus  Aug.  Primis  in  Idus  Aug.  sextas  annos  continuos  quinque
S(i)  q(uinquennium)  d(ecurrerit)  l(ocatio)  e(rit)  n(udo)  c(onsensu)    [CIL IV 1136]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.390)
According to Pagano and Prisciandaro, CIL IV 1136 was found in February 1756, between II.4.5 and II.4.6, and read –
In  praedi(i)s  Iuliae  Sp(uri)  f(iliae)  Felicis
locantur
balneum  Venerium  et  nongentum  tabernae  pergulae
cenacula  ex  Idibus  Aug(ustis)  primis  in  Aug(ustas)  sextas  annos  continuos  quinque
S()  Q()  D()  L()  E()  N()  C()
See Pagano, M. and Prisciandaro, R., 2006. Studio sulle provenienze degli oggetti rinvenuti negli scavi borbonici del regno di Napoli  Naples : Nicola Longobardi. (p.22). They give a note that says the letters stand for “si quis domi lenocinium exerceat non conducito”.
According to Cooley, this translates as –
To let, in the estate of Julia Felix, daughter of Spurius: elegant baths for respectable people, shops with upper rooms, and apartments. 
From the 13th August next to the 13th August of the sixth year, for five continuous years. The lease will expire at the end of the five years.
See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p.171)  She makes the point “The final phrase is highly abbreviated (with only the initial letter of each word).  Its meaning is not certain, but likely from the context”.  
CIL IV 1136 (and 1137) are now preserved at Naples Archaeological Museum, inventory number 4713.  A photo of the graffito, and surrounding ones, can be seen on pages 212 and 213 of Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider.

II.4.6 Pompeii. 3 separate frescoes with depiction of architectural fountains, united into one frame.  Now in Naples Archaeological Museum.  Inventory number 9275, described as being from Herculaneum. According to PPM, the separate vignettes of a Sphynx fountain (on left), and statue of a Philosopher (on right) would have been found in this front portico by the Bourbons, detached and sent to the Museum.
The vignette of the Herm used as a fountain, perhaps came from the atrium reached by entrance doorway II.4.10 and II.4.11, and from the south end of the west portico of the garden area.
