VIII.6.6 Pompeii.  This inscription is often wrongly attributed to VIII.7.6. The NdS 1882, stated that on leaving the large garden (of VIII.5.15) by the second south entrance (VIII.5.38), into the southern alley, this inscription was brought to light on the north wall of insula 6.See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1882, p. 436.
According to Varone this inscription was written at the entrance of VIII.6.6.
Miximus in lecto fateor peccavimus 
Hospes si dices quare nulla matella fuit       [CIL IV 4957]
He translated this as: We have wet the bed, I know. We have only sinned, o guest, if you tell us for what reason there was no urinal.     [CIL IV 4957]. See Varone, A., in Conticello, B., Ed, 1990. Rediscovering Pompeii. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p. 35 and note 62).

VIII.7.6 Pompeii. September 2010. Detail of oven in south-east corner of atrium area. According to PARP:PS, in 2008, the oven was built into the small partition wall and continued into the neighbouring room. There was evidence of a large burn deposit covering more or less the entire room. This may be from a domestic disaster or fallout from the 62CE earthquake. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker.
