VII.6.21 Pompeii. Shop with dwelling. Excavated 1868? 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.

According to Eschebach, this shop would have had a shop-counter with 3 dolia, on the left.

At the rear of the counter on the left, would have been a doorway to a rear room possibly a cubiculum.

At the rear on the right would have been a room with the steps to the upper floor and a cupboard.

Behind the room with the stairs would have been a kitchen, with hearth and latrine.

See Eschebach, L., 1993. Gebäudeverzeichnis und Stadtplan der antiken Stadt Pompeji. Köln: Böhlau. (p.295)

The approximate area for the kitchen would have been under the piled up stones and bricks at the rear.
