Warscher wrote : “Come questo compluvio con la grata ricostruita è l’unico nella città io ne do ancora tre fotografie le quali darranno una idea esatta di questa disposizione”.
(translation: As this compluvium with the reconstructed grating was unique in the city, I show three photoes which give an exact impression of it.)

I I.2.27-28 Pompeii. Old photo c.1870 showing thermopolium and house during excavation.
Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer. According to Della Corte, the bar at I.2.27 was a dependence of the neighbouring house at I.2.28. He could not speculate who they belonged to.
He thought it was a certain Polybius, as proved by the recommendation found to the east (right) of the entrance of the bar (the pillar shared with the house at I.2.28):

Polybius rog(at)  [CIL IV 3379]

See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.275)
