According to Della Corte, found in a cubicle to the left of the peristyle, was the famous graffito:

Semper M(arcu’) Terentius Eudoxsus usus (supstenet) amicos

Et tenet et tutat, supstenet omne modu    [CIL IV 4456]

 

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), it read –

 

Semper M(arcus) Terentius Eudoxsus unus amicos

et tenet et tutat su{p}stenet omne(m) modu(m)      [CIL IV 4456]

 

According to Berry, this translated as –

Only Marcus Terentius Eudoxsis always supports his friends - he keeps them and protects them and supports them in every way.  [CIL IV 4456]

See Berry, J., 2007. The Complete Pompeii. London, Thames & Hudson, (p.103).

VI.13.8 Pompeii. December 2004. Looking south-west from rear entrance, towards atrium. According to Garcia y Garcia, in 1943 a bomb destroyed the rear entrance. The three nearby rooms on the south-east side of the peristyle were destroyed as well as a good part of the east wall. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.86-87)
According to Della Corte, the peristyle was transformed into a weaving workshop, probably after the earthquake of 62AD. The workers took time to scratch their names in the portico.  The names of seven men were found - Vesbius or Vesbius Tamudianus, Felix, Ephesus, Xanthus, Successus, Faustus, and Florus: The  names of eleven women were found - Vitalis, Florentina, Amaryllis, Ianuaria, Heracla, Maria, Lalage, Damalis,  ….rusa,  .a., Baptis, and Doris.  Della Corte noted that two of the names were Jewish – that of Maria, and Vesbius Tamudianus.
