VI.16.11 Pompeii. December 2007. South wall and corridor leading to rear. According to Liselotte Eschebach, on the left, this wall used to have a base for a staircase to the upper floor against it.   See Eschebach, L., 1993. Gebäudeverzeichnis und Stadtplan der antiken Stadt Pompeji. Köln: Böhlau. (p.227). According to NdS, beside the south wall at the entrance doorway to the shop was an independent staircase accessed from a step and with a lava threshold from the street. This led to the above rooms. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1908, p. 58.

VI.16.11 Pompeii. May 2010. Doorway to rear room in north-west corner of shop. Looking west. According to NdS, the doorway would have had doorjambs and a threshold of wood.
The floor was made of opus signinum but was poorly preserved. The walls were divided into large red panels, divided by yellow pilasters or fillets, with feeding birds in the middle, a flying swan, and a rectangular painting with faded representation. The dado was red but also badly preserved. The frieze had a white background. The remains of the white frieze were still visible upon excavation, in the height of the west wall, in which there was a window. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1908, p. 59.
