VI.2.2 Pompeii.  Shop.  December 2007. 

Pilaster on Via Consolare between VI.2.2 and VI.2.1.  Possible site of Eituns?

According to Cooley, Oscan inscriptions (eituns) came to light when the plaster had peeled off the walls after excavation.

These were painted on the outer walls of houses near street corners.

An example has been found at VI.2.4.

These eituns were thought to relate to the military operations from the time of Sulla’s besiege of Pompeii.

See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p.19)

According to Antonini, the site of the eituns was to the left of doorway numbered  VI.2.1, as above.

The one found here is known as Vetter 23. It read –

eksuk. amvianud. eituns

anter. tiurri. XII. ini. ver(u)

sarinu. puf. faamat

m(a)r(a(hi)s). aadiriis. v(iibieis)

See Antonini, R. (2007): Contributi pompeiani II-IV, in

Quaderni di Studi Pompeiani, 1/2007, (p.47)

According to Cooley, this translated as –

“Go by this route between the 12th tower and the Salt Gate, where Maras Atrius, son of Vibius, gives instructions”.

She added the note that the Salt Gate is the Oscan name for what is now known as the Herculaneum Gate.
