According to Della Corte, the electoral recommendation CIL IV 499, possibly gave the name of Aurelius to be the merchant in this shop.

They had come from outside Pompeii near “il Sarno”.  Some of these are now to be found outside the city wall below the Temple of Venus and the Sarno Baths.  See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.89).
