I.12.5 Pompeii. December 2006. Painted wall plaster between two doorways.     I.12.4
High up near the architrave, on the west side (right) of the doorway of I.12.5, a large painted head was found. This showed the personification of Alessandria, or of Egypt, looking straight ahead. Her head was covered with the usual tusks of an elephant.
On the left side of the large painted head, where the stucco is now missing, was a painted Mercury. Mercury (0.56m high) was standing with his caduceus leaning on his left shoulder.
His purse was in his right hand. Many graffiti were recorded from the walls between I.12.5 and I.12.4. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1914, (p.181-2)

II.2.4 Pompeii. Large terracotta table with raised border.
According to Spinazzola, a large thick table/board with raised border (m.1.18 side to side), was found badly mutilated in this house. 
On the border of the pottery table/board, the potter (Corinthus) signed this, accompanying his name with the pottery workshop 
"de fi(glinis) C(ai) Cluenti Ampliati – Corinthus fecit", of which he evidently was the master maker (see I.7.4).

II.2.4 Pompeii. Detail of graffiti inscribed on the large table/board.
According to Della Corte –
Found in a vertical position on a threshold was an interesting inscribed terracotta item.
It was about half (in two pieces) of a massive table/board, of 004m in thickness, with a raised edge (1.18m long on the side entirely preserved).
In the raised edge, after firing, the provenance of the piece was engraved, followed by the name of the person who made it.
