December 2007. Inscription K.Q. in Vicolo Storto outside VII.2.28. 
K.Q is Kalendis Quintilibus (July 1st).  According to Mau this apparently relates to the laying of pavement and must go back before 44BC when the month QUINCTILUS was changed to IULIUS, our July. Pompeii was therefore paved before 44BC.
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.228).
