According to Della Corte, on the pilaster on the right of the doorway, having seen the presence of an older programma, here and there transparent through the letters of another already published (Report of the month of April 1912, number 10) I proceeded to transcribe it entirely, peeling here and there the rear of lime.

The program so recovered says-

 

M(a)r(ce)ll(u)m / IIvir(um) iter(um) faber / vig<i=V>la et roga d(ignum) r(ei) p(ublicae) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV 7147]

According to Della Corte, as for No.3, the excavation works here were held at the height of the upper floors.

In the first place, the walls and the room with a window above the workshop numbered 3, were secured, putting into place the lintel. On the right doorpost of this shop, at the height of a man, appeared the programma -

 

L(ucium) Popidium Secundum / aed(ilem) d(ignum) r(ei) p(ublicae) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) / iuvenem probum / dignus est [CIL IV 7146]
The letters of the first line measure in height 0.27m. 
The others reduce in height to the last line, whose letters are 0.10m high
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, April 1912, (p.141, numbered 10).

I.6.3 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking south across workshop, with steps to upper floor on the right. The high zoccolo of Opus signinum with panels separated by black bands and edged by thin red lines formed the simple decoration of this workshop, and followed the line of the stairs leading above.  The decoration of the Opus signinum floor had inserted polychrome marble tiles. In the south wall of the rear room was a window, which took its light from the atrium of the neighbouring house at I.6.2.
