IX.7.7 Pompeii. May 2006. Entrance on Via dell’Abbondanza. Upon excavation, a plaster-cast of the door was made showing the horizontal long bolt made of iron. Part of this plaster-cast can still be seen in the doorway, although it has deteriorated with age.
On the left of the doorway was a painting of Mercury with inscriptions above, and another painting below. The paintings have now been detached from the wall and are held in the storerooms together with CIL IV 7841 and 7842. (inventory number 40685.  Found on the lower painting, from the pilaster on the left of the doorway, were inscriptions CIL IV 7843 and 7844.  These have now almost vanished.

IX.7.7 Pompeii. Graffiti from west side of entrance doorway. According to Della Corte, at the top of the pilaster was CIL IV 7841, which gave the name of one of the workers with the recommendation – Cuculla rog(at)    [CIL IV 7841].  See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.280).  According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), this read –
C(aium)  Iulium  Polyb//iu/m 
IIvir(um) Cuculla rog(at)      [CIL IV 7841] 
This translates as “Cuculla asks for C. Julius Polybius as duovir”.
See Conticello, B., Ed, 1990. Rediscovering Pompeii. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (pp.150-53).
Beneath CIL IV 7841, but still above the painting of Mercury, was CIL IV 7842, this read as –
Holconium  Priscum
IIvir(um)  i(ure)  d(icundo)  d(ignum)  r(ei)  p(ublicae)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)     [CIL IV 7842]
This translates as “I ask you to elect Holconius Priscus duovir. He is worthy of holding office”.  See Conticello, B., Ed, 1990. Rediscovering Pompeii. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (pp.150-53).  See Berry, J., 2007. The Complete Pompeii. London, Thames & Hudson. (p.131)
