When reading the description pages in the Notizie degli Scavi (NdS) for this insula please note there was some renumbering of the entrances as excavations proceeded.

NdS, January 1897, p.14, had a numbered plan of the houses excavated, from VI.15.2  to VI.15.10 on the east side.

NdS, May 1897, p.198, it stated that the space given the number 2 was not in fact a doorway, but part of the kitchen of No.3. Doorways VI.15.3 to 10 were thus renumbered VI.15.2 to 9.

NdS, June 1897, p.269, correctly shows VI.15.10, 11 and 12 on the continuation plan, but shows an unnumbered doorway between 12 and 13.  This unnumbered doorway was subsequently renumbered 13 and 13 was renumbered 14. The description of VI.15.13 in this part of NdS is thus describing VI.15.14.

NdS, November 1897, p.460 shows VI.15.13 to 18 correctly. The unnumbered entrance is now VI.15.13 and  the next entrance has been renumbered to VI.15.14.

On the west side of the insula on the plans, the houses are shown as Roman numerals as follows –

I    = VI.15.26

II   = VI.15.24

III  = VI.15.23

IV  = VI.15.22

V   = VI.15.21

VI  = VI.15.20

VII = VI.15.19
