I.5.2 Pompeii. September 2010. 207 Stairs leading down to open area, from south side of peristyle garden. Looking east. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker.
According to Jashemski, this was a large open area from which previous construction had been cleared. It was excavated in 1873-4.
Five doors in the south wall leading to the pomerium had been blocked up. Viola suggested that the garden was used for drying the leather in the sun. Tatiana Warscher believed the site was used as a kitchen garden.
