VII.4.16 Pompeii. September 2005. West corner pilaster. Plaque of Nucerian stone showing relief of two men carrying an amphora on a wooden pole stretched across their shoulders. Fiorelli thought the plaque showed this was a “taberna vinaria”.  Della Corte thought on the evidence of two graffiti naming “saccari” , that it could have been a workshop for “carriers or delivery men or boys”. These would have been needed where carts or donkeys could not get to, and goods would have been delivered by hand. See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.89)
According to Della Corte, found on this corner pilaster was a recommendation for the candidate A. Vettio. Another one in support of Cerrinio Vatia was also found nearby, on an external wall to the north of this one but he did not know from where.

M(arcum)  Cerrinium  [V]a[tia]m

Fiorelli said there were many painted epigraphs written on this pilaster, the most important being – A. VETTIUM AED. SACCARI ROG.
See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.89)

Also found here in July 1821 was –
Licinium  Faustium  aed(ilem)      [CIL IV 554]
and on the pilaster, on the right, was written –
Si<tt=LV>ium  Magnum      [CIL IV 553]

VII.4.16 Pompeii. September 2005. West corner pilaster.

Plaque of Nucerian stone showing relief of two men carrying an amphora on a wooden pole stretched across their shoulders.

 

Agyagfalva describes it as a pottery shop, with the name Samellius.

He says that here in 1819 were found a lot of pottery ware, such as: dishes, plates, pots, vases, lamps.

See Agyagfalva, Ludwig Goro von, 1825. Wanderungen durch Pompeii. Wien: Morschner und Jasper, p. 107.

C.T.P. records CIL IV 498 against this reference.
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) this reads

 

M(arcum) Samellium      [CIL IV 498].

 

Fiorelli thought the plaque showed this was a “taberna vinaria”.

See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.89)

 

According to C.T.P. the plaque gave the appellation “Corporazione dei facchini di piazza” - a Guild of Porters.

See Van der Poel, H. B., 1983. Corpus Topographicum Pompeianum, Part II. Austin: University of Texas, p. 278.
