VI.4.1 Pompeii. May 2006. Entrance doorway with counter. According to Della Corte, this thermopolium  or workshop was always described in the old bibliographies as an “officina farmaceutica”.  Why?  Many chemical preparations and many jars with dried medicines and pills were found here. As medical substances, they are unknown, however as the results have never been analysed. The notion that it was an “officina farmaceutica”, however was, and stays, simply circumstantial. See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.42)
