V.6.7 Pompeii. House with a fountain or nymphaeum.

Under excavation August 2018.

 

Only the western and southern street fronts have been excavated, c.1902, 1905-8.

As this area has not been excavated, it is extremely difficult to see and show exactly where the entrances were.

We have followed the plan as Eschebach drew it in 1969, as best we can.

Until this area is fully excavated, this may or may not be the correct number of entrances.

Some excavations are being carried out in 2018 as part of a scheme to improve drainage in Pompeii.

This photo is described by Jashemski as “Via Stabia unexcavated, Across from VI.16.”
Whilst it is impossible to be sure V.6.7 is the correct location, it seems too good a photo not to use.
We shall have to wait until the insula is excavated completely !!

In August 2018.

 

Along the Via del Vesuvio, proceeding southwards, the upper part of a fountain / nymphaeum was brought to light.

The façade is facing the inside of the insula, where a garden probably opened.

The surface so far exposed (upper part of the columns, upper part of the niche and pediment) is covered with vitreous tesserae and shells, which form complex decorative motifs.

A bird is shown above one of the columns on the upper part of a fountain / nymphaeum.
