VIII.4.7 Pompeii. December 2007. Entrance and east wall of shop. 
Also showing the pilaster on the left of the doorway, between VIII.4.8 and 7. Painted in red and black, and found in May 1855, on this pilaster were:

Lollium  Fuscum
aed(ilem)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)    [CIL IV 734]

N(umerium)  Popidium  Rufum
II vir(um)  Severus  rog(at)     [CIL IV 735]

Postumium
quinq(uennalem)    [CIL IV 736]

L(ucium)  Ceium  Secum  II vir(um)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)
Amiullius  Cosmus  cum
(…)ario  rog(at)     [CIL IV 737]

[E]pidium  Sabinum
II vir(um)  Po[st]umi  faciunt    [CIL IV 738]

Lollium

See Pagano, M. and Prisciandaro, R., 2006. Studio sulle provenienze degli oggetti rinvenuti negli scavi borbonici del regno di Napoli.  Naples : Nicola Longobardi.  (p. 172)
According to Della Corte, the two shops at VIII.4.8 and VIII.4.7 were under the ownership of one (Ianu)arius and another called Severus. He reached this conclusion because the two electoral recommendations were written one near the other on the dividing pilaster of the two shops:
Severus  rog(at)    [CIL IV 735]
and
[CIL IV 737] above, where he interpreted (…)ario as (Ianu)ario.
