M   M         [CIL IV 2310 b]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.149)

According to Varone, this translated as “Euplia was here with thousands of good-looking men”.  In the third line the M M, (two thousand), presumably referred to any number of thousands of good-looking men !
See Varone, A., 2002. Erotica Pompeiana: Love Inscriptions on the Walls of Pompeii, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider. (p.71) 

On the pilaster to the right of the stairs, was written:
