VI.11.13 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking west towards atrium, from entrance corridor. According to Jashemski, a passageway in this house (excavated in 1842) led from the atrium to an open area on the right in which there was a cistern head.  Such an area would normally be a garden but, since Fiorelli on the basis of numerous graffiti identified this site as the home and workshop of a producer of sailors clothing, the garden may have been used for other purposes. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.144). For list of graffiti, see below.
