Excavated 1834, 1844 and 1867?

 

VII.3.40 Pompeii. September 2005. Entrance. According to Della Corte, between the doorways of VII.3.39 and VII.3.40, was written a curious painted graffito. He thought it was written not much after the year 80BC.

Quintio(m)  si  qui  recusant  assidat  ad  asinum      [CIL IV 2887] 

Della Corte translated this as,“Chi rifiuta Quinzio, (o gli e contro nell’elezione), merita la pubblica fustigazione a dorso d’asino”
This roughly translates as “Who refuses Quinzio (or is against in the election), deserves the public flogging on a donkey’s back”.
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p. 125)

According to Fiorelli, at the end of the vicolo near these doorways, there were various painted graffiti. Two of them were

SALINESIBVS . FELICITER

IVDICIS . AVG . FELIC 

The latter was painted in red letters on the upper part of the wall.  Also inscribed in big letters was the word  ROMA.
