VI.11.16 Pompeii. September 2005. Entrance doorway.

According to Fiorelli, this was another house with entrance corridor between two bedrooms, and an atrium without any lateral rooms.

In the corner of the atrium was the hearth.

At the rear of the atrium were a small room and a triclinium.

These were separated by a corridor that led to the kitchen with cesspit, and to another rustic room, one of which had a window which looked over the garden which was below.

See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.70)

For graffiti found on outside walls of the vicolo, see below the last photo.

VI.11.16 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking west from atrium, along corridor between two rooms.
According to Della Corte, when excavated everyone believed that this was a Lupanar, and that this was proved by the characteristic inscribed graffiti on the outside walls, between the entrances 13 and 16 of this insula, and 23 and 24 of the opposite insula VI.15. Translating the names and signatures of the many clients that had drunk at this cup of love shop, he transcribed the names of seven women who lodged here.
