VIII.2.7 Pompeii. Edifici della Pubblica Amministrazione. Vicolo del Foro e passaggio e le scale al piano superiore. Interruzione del fuoco?

Public Administration Buildings. Vicolo del Foro and passageway with steps to upper floor. Fire break?

First excavated c.1814.

 

According to PAP website –

this is described as a gap that isolates “the Tabularium [VIII.2.6], a store, from the neighbouring buildings to avoid the risk of fire”.

See PAP website

 

Liselotte Eschebach describes it as: Paved angiportus (remnant of an abandoned road) with, left, stairs to the first floor.

According to Zanella –

This was formerly known as Vicolo del Foro, a small roadway, allowing to access the rear of the house VIII.2.12-13 and the Casa dei Mosaici geometrici.
