According to Warscher, quoting Fiorelli, she wrote – “I.2.15, una casa che apparteneva a persona di umile condizione e che ricorda la casa primitiva di Pompei: consiste dell’atrio “a”, due cubicoli e di una fauce che menava alla cucina, alla stalla, ad’una apotheca, alla latrina, ed a una gradinata di fabbrica per le stanze superiori”.
See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. Rome: DAIR.
(translation: "I. 2.15, a house that belonged to a person of humble condition and reminiscent of primitive houses of Pompeii: consisting of an atrium “a”, two cubiculae, and a corridor that led to the kitchen, to the stable, and to a storeroom, to the latrine, and to a masonry staircase to the upper rooms.”)
