VII.6.25 Pompeii. Extra room on west side of VII.6.24 and VII.6.23, linked to VII.6.22.

Excavated 1762, 1846, 1872, 1910. Bombed in 1943.

 

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.
