According to Fiorelli, this small house also without an entrance corridor, had a staircase to the upper floor in the atrium. At the rear of the atrium it had only one room bordering onto a corridor leading to the kitchen and a nearby room. On the exterior walls on either side of the doorway, many obscene graffiti and women’s names were found. Names included, Iucunda, Secunda, Aprodite, Numpe, Veneria, Restituta, with graffiti that revealed their lives. See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875).

VI.11.15 Pompeii. September 2005.

Stairs to upper floor in south-east corner of atrium, south of entrance doorway.

 

VI.11.15 Pompeii. September 2005. Closed tablinium on west side of atrium, with corridor to rear kitchen, on right. According to Boyce, at the end of the corridor, were to be seen the ruins of a structure enclosing a rectangular niche. The inside walls were coated with white stucco.
Here was probably the lararium described in the report as –
“un piccolo masso di fabbrica, forse ara, ed una piccolo nicchia, per cui potrebbe credersi un sacrario”. His reference was – Bull. Arch. Nap., i, 1843, 74.
