VI.14.8 Pompeii. December 2006. Doorway to small room on right side, with stairs to upper floor ? According to Helbig, visible in the second rear room on the left was an unclear painting. See Helbig, W., 1868. Wandgemälde der vom Vesuv verschütteten Städte Campaniens. Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel. (1387b).  According to Fiorelli, the painting perhaps showed two litigants in the presence of a magistrate? See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.157).  According to Eschebach, this may also have been known as the “Casetta dei Litiganti”, presumably named from the painting.  See Eschebach, L., 1993.
