VII.13.20 Pompeii. Thermopolium. 

Linked to VII.13.21. Excavated 1820, 1863. (Vico d’Eumachia 6)

 

According to Fiorelli –

“20. Nel vico occidentale eravi una bottega, a fianco della quale stava scritto il programma, ora scomparso:

 

SEXTICVM . SYRTICVM . D. VIR

 

Essa aveva al di sopra un meniano sporgente sul vico, e nel limitare il banco della vendita con quattro urne di terracotta e la piccola fornace: nel fondo trovavasi un recesso per gli avventori, ed accanto a questo un’apotheca con altro podio o focolare, che sta a sinistra della porta d’ingresso”.

See Fiorelli, “Descrizione”, (p.299)

 

(translation: “20. In the western roadway we have a shop, at the side of which a programme was written, which has now disappeared:

 SEXTICVM . SYRTICVM . D. VIR

Above the shop was a balcony hanging over the roadway, and inside was the sales bench with four terracotta urns and a small hearth: at the rear was a small room for the customers and nearby to this was a cupboard or small storeroom with another podium or hearth, which was to the left of the entrance doorway”. )
