IX.9.2 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance doorway with long entrance corridor, looking south.

IX.9.2 Pompeii. March 2009.  Looking north from rear, towards thermopolium at IX.9.1 (on left)  and entrance passageway (on right). According to NdS, this would be looking north across the atrium displuviate (atrium without an impluvium). The flooring was made of crushed brick (mattone pesto) and the walls were covered with rustic plaster. Near the west wall was the staircase to the upper floor, made of 13 masonry steps, which was held up by pilasters and arches. Underneath the stairs, these formed three plastered storage recesses or cupboards of different heights. According to NdS, the steps would have been clad with wood on the upper side. In the north-west corner there was a fusorium, or sink.

IX.9.2 Pompeii. March 2009. Doorway to room “e” on south-east side of atrium, instead of a tablinum. This room would have had opus signinum flooring but this was lacking. This room appeared to have been used as a passageway from the atrium to the peristyle, with which it joined. For rooms at the rear surrounding the peristyle, see IX.9.a.
