IX.9.8 Pompeii. May 2010. Looking south-east from Via di Nola towards the counter.  According to Cooley’s translation, CIL IV 3775 was found here, although she gives the location as IX.VII.8. According to the note in Jashemski, this address is given as IX.VII.8,  in Mau, RM (1889), p.30 and pl.1.  However Della Corte describes CIL IV 3775 as coming from the house “opposite the entrance” of the house of Aemilius Celer, which would be IX.8.8.  Neighbours beg you to elect Lucius Statius Receptus duumvir with judicial power, a worthy man. Aemilius Celer wrote this, a neighbour. You jealous one who destroys this, may you fall ill.

According to NdS, the usual sales-counter was situated near the entrance to the bar.
On the east wall was a painting of a gladiator, (the part that remained being 60 high x 50 wide) which had been covered over and a new layer of plaster applied on top.
When the upper layer fell, the painting reappeared on a white background.
The figure of the gladiator was armed with a crested helmet with perforated visor, a large, curved rectangular shield, and legging on his left leg.
Near his head the following inscription in black letters was read –
AEDIM • SVLL •  XLIX         
        V                               [CIL IV 3789]
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1889, p.126, (note the difference between XLIX above, and Sogliano’s XIIX below).

According to Jacobelli, Sogliano thought that AEDIM was what remained of the gladiator’s name.
His armour indicated that he was a Samnite.
XIIX was the number of contests that he had fought, and the letter V meant he was victorious in that particular contest.
SVLL showed that he belonged to the family “Sullana”.

IX.9.8 Pompeii. May 2005.  Looking south across bar-room to rear room. According to NdS, opposite the entrance opened the rear-room intended for the customers. On the right pilaster of the doorway to this room, a figure of Mercury (0.62 high) was found painted on a red background. He was shown with wings on his helmet and feet, and a green mantle wrapped around his left arm. In his left hand he held a staff, and in the right hand he held his purse. At his feet was a cockerel in the act of crowing. The figure of the cockerel was not without grace. The room was decorated with red and yellow panels, and in the rear ,south wall, was observed a painting (0.84 high x 0.33 wide) showing the three graces.
The painting was found largely destroyed.
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1889, p.126
Items found in this rear room included a bronze corroded Imperial coin, a bronze ornamental head of a tiger, and an iron hoe.
