VII.6.19 Pompeii. Workshop of a Negotiator Pigmentarius?

Linked to VII.6.20 and VII.6.28. Excavated 1873?

 

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.

According to Garcia y Garcia, this was very devastated and ruined following the September 1943 bombing, together with VII.6.20.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.102). 
According to Della Corte, because of the considerable quantities of colouring materials and pigments found here, he considered it the workshop of an unknown and unnamed Negotiator Pigmentarius.
