Plaque between IX.1.13 and IX.1.14.  December 2005. According to Gallo, the sign on the façade showing a tufa phallus was the only merit of this shop.
The plaque, originally painted azure blue, shows an erect phallus with appendices painted in red, with an inscription painted in red below:
Ubi me iuvat, asido  (CIL IV, 950)
According to Varone, this translates at “When it suits me, I sit on it”
(Asido is written instead of assido)
See Varone, A., 2002. Erotica Pompeiana: Love Inscriptions on the Walls of Pompeii, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider. (p.90)
