V.6 Vicolo delle Nozze d’Argento from Via del Vesuvio looking east at V.6.a/b/c. December 2006. The first blocked doorway,V.6.a on the left, would have been the rear entrance of V.6.1. According to Cooley, somewhere on the façade of V.6.b/c, that is between the second and third blocked doorway, CIL IV 7034 was found: 
Cn. Helvius Sabinus for [duum]vir.
(Cooley thought this was probably a mistake by the writer of the notice.
According to Cooley,  Marcus Epidius Sabinus was a candidate for duumvir in the same year as Helvius Sabinus was candidate for aedile.
This is what presumably confused the writer of the graffito.)
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), it would have read
Cn(aeus) Helvium Sabinum [II] vir(um)    [CIL IV 7034].

V.1.11 Pompeii, on the left.  Via delle Nozze d’Argento, looking west. May 2005.  On the right is the blocked vicolo between V.6 and V.7.
Then on the corner of V.6.c, opposite the rear entrance at V.1.11/12, would have been the graffiti below. According to Della Corte, two graffiti were found on the right side of the entrance doorway of V.6.c.
These he said, proved that the inhabitant of the house was Circineo Crescente.  Circinaeus  hic  habitat      [CIL IV 7037]
Circinaeus  Cresce(n)s  hic  (habitat)      [CIL IV 7067]
Della Corte said that  Circineo Crescente also declared himself the author of the notice painted on the corner of the insula :
Stercorari, ad murum progredere. Si presus fueris, poena patiare necesse est, cave.   [CIL IV 7038]
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), CIL IV 7038 may be read as:
Stercorari
ad murum
progredere si
pre(n)sus fueris poena(m)
patiare neces(s)e
est cave
According to Varone and Stefani, CIL IV 7038 was painted on the south-east corner. It is no longer visible.
See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider, (p.307)
The picture on page 307, dated around 1905, does show the graffito in situ. It may have been found on the west side of the corner of the blocked vicolo, where a white patch can be seen on the wall in the photo above.

Stercorari, ad murum progredere. Si presus fueris, poena patiare necesse est, cave.   [CIL IV 7038]

(Translation from Pompeii, little guide with 21 illustrations, 1963 -

 Evacuator, go near the wall. If they catch you in the fact, you will pay dear for your fault. Be careful).

 

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), CIL IV 7038 may be read as:
