According to NdS, -

Following from No. 7, the doorway numbered IX.XI.8, which because of the width of the aperture, appears clearly to have been the entrance to a shop: it was closed by means of the characteristic series of movable vertical planks, with swivel pivot on the hinge at the right end. Two bronze bells were connected to the movable shutters in the upper extremity, these were respectively 0.09 and 0.11m, and cylindrical in shape.

 

On the east side of the shop was a wide pilaster, on which, above the red zoccolo, the following electoral programmes were seen

And nearby on the same pilaster, another programme read -

The front of the shop in question was protected by a short shelter, protruding over the pavement for the length of three roofing-tiles, assembled over so many beams fixed into the façade and found in large part in their place in the state of carbon at a metre high above of the lintel. The lintels of this shop and the preceding entrance at no.7, appeared totally in a state of carbon.  It seems we have here the end of the front of Insula XI, and that the high wall that turns to the north looks into the eastern vicolo of the insula.
