VII.6.22 Pompeii. Caupona. Linked to VII.6.23, VII.6.24 and VII.6.25.

Excavated 1762, 1846, 1872, 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.

It is now occupied by a modern alfresco, a dependant of the nearby restaurant, for outdoor eating.
