VII.6.5 Pompeii. Site of staircase to upper storey.

Excavated 1760, 1841, 1910?.

 

According to Garcia y Garcia Region VII, Insula VI was one of the insulae most devastated over the years since its excavation.

He calls it the “Cinderella” of Pompeii. Between the years 1759 and 1762 it was vandalised and stripped by the Bourbons, then re-interred.

Then came the slow and non-systematic uncovering again before the final destruction in September 1943.

The area was ignored and abandoned during the years following the war, which reduced the insula to a heap of bricks and masonry.

See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.102).

In the centre is a wider doorway to the shop at VII.6.4. The room on the right of the stone dividing wall would have been part of VII.6.3. On the right the bar at VII.6.2/1 can be seen.
