VII.4.20 Pompeii. March 2009. North and east wall of shop room.
Note that the north wall is modern, and has effectively reduced the size of the original large shop-room by about half.
According to Fiorelli, at the rear of this shop-room was a triclinium, preceded by the stairs to the upper rooms, and skirted by a corridor that came into a small courtyard/garden, and where to the left were two small rooms and the main garden area. To the right and covered by a lean-to roof was the kitchen, latrine, cistern and perhaps also a store-room. Painted on the rear north wall of the courtyard, facing the corridor, was the lararium, but nothing remains of it today, other than the drawing by La Volpe and the incision of Museo Borbonico.
