According to Fiorelli –
VI.17.15-18 – “Due case unite costituivano forse l’abitazione di una sola famiglia.  Esse avevano due ingressi separati sulla strada e due botteghe, stando in relazione tra loro per gli atrii, entrambi tuscanici, e ciascuno con tre cubicoli da un solo lato.
La prima inoltre no.16, teneva accanto allo ingresso la cucina, poco piu innanza la gradinata che la metteva in communicazione con la casa seguente, e nel fondo il triclinio, una seconda scalinata, e due oeci.
La seconda, casa no.17, che sembra la piu nobile, conteneva le ali, il tablino, due fauci, ed un’altra gradinata di discesa. 
L’edificio poi era terminato nel piano piu alto con un loggiato, che ora era distrutto.
In uno dei pilastri che fronteggiano la strada leggevasi:
M . CERRINIVM

"Two united houses constituting perhaps the dwelling of a single family. They had two separate entrances on the roadway and two shops, linked to the atriums, both atriums were Tuscanic, and each with three cubicula only on one side.
The first No. 16, had the kitchen near to the entrance doorway, nearby were the the steps linking with the next house, and at the rear was the triclinium, a second stairway, and two oeci.
The second, house No. 17, which seemed the most noble, contained ala, the tablinum, two corridors, and another steps leading down. 
The building was finished on the highest floor with a loggia, which was now destroyed. 
In one of the pillars that fronted onto the roadway, the following could have been read -
M . CERRINIVM
AED . SALINIENSIS
               ROG                           ”)
