According to NdS, on the right wall of the entrance corridor, next to the doorway to the rustic room, graffiti was found on the red plastered zoccolo. It read
P-AE
This most probably referred to P. Ae(milius) for the number of times that this name occurred on the walls of this small roadway.

IX.9.e Pompeii. March 2009. Room 17, looking south-east across small atrium containing stairs to upper floor. According to NdS, this was a covered atrium also with a beaten floor, and walls of rustic white plaster with a high red zoccolo. The plaster was lacking on the north wall, against which was the masonry beginnings of a staircase. This staircase would have continued in wood and led to the rooms above the entrance corridor and two rooms leading from it (rooms 18 and 19). It would also have led to the balcony which stuck out into the roadway above the entrance doorway. This had now fallen, leaving no other trace than the holes in the outer wall for holding the frame.

IX.9.e Pompeii. March 2009. Room 16, light yard, south-west corner. Looking west. According to Boyce, in the small open courtyard in the centre of the house, a sacrarium was formed. It was constructed by building a small wall parallel to the south wall, and then covering the enclosure with a sloping roof. At the east end of this enclosure stood a small altar of tufa, originally coated with stucco. The inside surface of the north wall was decorated with a white background and a drawing.
This was of an aedicula and within it a male figure, standing, clad in a yellow tunic. The south wall was also covered with white stucco, the west wall with a coarser variety. A female head of terracotta was found near the sacellum, apparently part of a statue. Not. Scavi, 1889,136; 1891,255.  See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.
