Via del Foro? Or nearby. Between 1819 and 1832, sketches by William Gell.
These may or may not be from here but are described mainly as being in and around “Street north end of Forum”, and “In the street leading from Forum to Pansa’s house.
Then at the lower end is a note regarding the sketches on the underside, but no location given, other than the “scandalous chamber” or “scandalous house”, so we must assume that no location is known, (see below).

Via del Foro or nearby? Erotic scene with inscription "ad ... sic Amilliu (s)" [CIL IV 2510]
Graffiti inscribed with a nail on the wall, and drawings from the walls of the “scandalous chamber”.
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 25689.
According to BDI, 1841, -
“At another point of the same Strada della Fortuna and precisely facing the grand Casa di Pansa, some new houses have been returned to the light that stretch out towards the Vicolo delle Terme and which were already unearthed from 1757 to 1761, and then recovered again, like the Casa called “of Cicero” and the Casa dell’Imperadore Giuseppe II. Nothing significant has been found in these houses, but from the Vicolo delle Terme one entered into a new lupanare, adjacent to them. On the wall facing to where one entered into the first room, formed like a shop, a naked Venus was painted, almost to tempt the competition, and various obscene compositions, now for the most part faded and shabby, which decorated the side walls of the large room, and the small neighbouring ones………..”
