VI.15.15 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking across L-shaped counter with three dolia and a hearth. According to NdS, the sales counter was faced externally with plaster imitating coloured marble, ‘giallo antico’ and framed in a porphory frame. Internally it was faced with red plaster, the same as that of the high dado.  On the south wall of the counter were the usual shelves for displaying the wares. There were four shelves and the last was interrupted to make way to a small closet/cupboard. Thetop of the counterwas faced with marble fragments. The counter/bench ended in a small hearth, in which an iron tripod was found on 29th November 1897. Both in this thermopolium and in the following at VI.15.16, traces of fire were observed.
