VII.4.51 Pompeii. December 2007. Remains of a capital in storage in the Forum Granary store VII.7.29. According to Spano, this damaged capital of Nocera tufa stone was found lying abandoned in a room of VII.4.59 the House of the Black Wall. When found, only half of each side was preserved, the left half of the front face and the right half of the side face.
The above photo shows the side that would have been pointing into the fauces. He suggested it may have been the capital from the right side of the entrance of the House of Ariadne. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p.280 and p.282, fig. 12.

VII.4.51 Pompeii. December 2006. Remains of a capital in storage in the Forum Granary store VII.7.29. The capital is laying on its back showing the front side and the pointed corner with the remains of the scroll that separated the two sides. The capital stone was badly splintered and the details destroyed or damaged. However these few parts were sufficient to show the figures of this capital were similar to that of the other that is very much better conserved. These show similarities in the heads of a satyr and of a maenadlooking to the front, the one near to the other. To the side of each group a small scroll and a line of leaves of vertical acanthuses below, both things characteristic of Pompeian figured capitals. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p.282.
