I.11.16 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 5, room in south-west corner of caupona and bar area, looking towards west wall. According to Packer, the room received its light from a window in the west wall which was later closed and converted into a rectangular niche.
As cuttings in the plaster of the west wall showed, the original ceiling was a false vault with a crown 3.05m above the floor. Packer included the note: “RDP report that this room was under excavation on July 14 1960. Some of the more important items found in it include:
an ovoidal bronze situla, a bronze patera, a silver spiralform ring, the bronze disk of a mirror, part of a lock, a terracotta lamp and an Arretine plate”.
