VI.2.20 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking west towards rooms on north side of open area. According to Jashemski, Fiorelli said this site, excavated 1810-11, may have been a hospitium. The entrance from the street led into an open area, which may possibly have had some plantings. A covered passageway on the right of the open area gave access to a large triclinium and two smaller rooms on the north side. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.
