VIII.7.28 Pompeii. September 2015. Looking towards the south-west corner, and the flight of stairs leading down to the west (right) to an underground vaulted chamber, about five feet wide and six and a half feet long. According to Mau, a low base in one of the corners of the underground room, would have held a jar while it was being filled with the holy Nile water, more or less genuine, which would have been used in the sacred rites.
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.179).
