VI.13.9 Pompeii. December 2004.
Looking north-west from entrance doorway, towards room on north side of entrance doorway.
According to Varone, found inscribed near the entrance was –
Nunc est ira recens nunc est disc[edere tempus]
si dolor afuerit crede redibit [amor] [CIL IV 4491]
This translated as –
Anger is now fresh, it is better now to retreat. When resentment has gone, believe me, love will return
