1.2.17 Pompeii. 1935 photo taken by Tatiana Warscher. Looking north along entrance corridor towards doorway.
See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (no.28), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.
According to Warscher, quoting Bull. Inst, 1874, p.264 – I.2.17 “La fauces che hanno la soglia di lava, s’abbassano un poco verso l’interno.  Nel muro sinistra vi è una piccola nicchia con suole e cornice di marmo a guisa d’un tempietto. Nel suole di essa sono tre buchi, uno più profondo degli altri destinati probabilmente per mettervi piccoli idoli, come la lastra sporgente del suolo serviva per oblazioni. Presso gli angoli che formano le fauces coll’atrio manca lo stucco del muro, e nel suolo su ciascun lato si vede una pietra di lava: evidentemente vi stavano li postes di legno”.
(translation: I.2.17 “The fauces that had a threshold of lava, led slightly downwards towards the atrium. In the left wall there was a small niche with floor and cornice of marble, in the guise of a shrine. In the floor were three holes, one deeper than the others, which was used probably for a small idol, and the protruding slab of the floor was used for donations. Near the corner that joined the fauces with the atrium, the wall stucco was missing and in the floor on that side one could see a slab of lava: evidently there were wooden posts”.)
