V.4.b Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance. According to Garcia y Garcia, this small house was badly hit by a falling bomb, during the night of 16th September 1943. This led to the destruction of the entrance corridor, the atrium and some rooms to the north. He wrote, it remained forgotten without any restoration. During the 1982 control for the RICA plans, he saw the debris of the bombed rooms still heaped up, in situ.

V.4.b Pompeii. March 2009. Large triclinium, on north side of entrance corridor.
According to Warscher, in the dining room one could still see a triclinium which in some places, still had green stucco with remains of red points.
See Warscher, T., 1925. Pompeji: Ein Führer durch die Ruinen. Berlin und Leipzig: de Gruyter. (p.127)
According to Small, a graffito on the wall of a triclinium gave the names of the planetary deities in the order in which we know them, (CIL IV.6779). Mercury was already illegible when the house was excavated in 1901.
See Small, A.M: Religion in the Roman period, in
