The first three steps were in masonry, the remaining in wood resting on the short landing.

On the upper floor, the small area was made up of two rooms on the corner.

The decoration of the two rooms, both illuminated by windows onto the roadway, was of the simplest type of the fourth style, with a background of purple/peacock blue and yellow, separated by black bands.

According to Olga Elia -

 

La scala era conservata per tre gradini ed un pianerottolo a 1.15m dal suolo, e quivi sulla parete era dipinto un quadro di Larario (0.55m x 0.40m) in cattivo stato di conservazione. Nella parte conservata del quadri si riconoscono, al centro, la figura del Genio coperta di toga listata e velata, con il corno dell’Abbondanza nella sinistra; a destra quella del Lare, avente nello mano abbassata una coppa e nella sinistra sollevata un rhyton; ancora a destra, nell’estrema parte del quadro, si osserva. Nella parte superiore pendono i lembi di un grande festone.

 

The staircase is preserved for three steps and with a landing at 1.15 m from the ground, and here on the wall was painted a lararium picture (0.55 m x 0.40 m) in a poor state of preservation. In the preserved part of the paintings one recognizes, in the centre, the figure of the Genius covered with a toga, with the Horn of Abundance in the left hand; to the right that of the Lar, having a cup in his lowered hand and a drinking horn raised in his left hand; still on the right, in the extreme part of the picture, there is a large lit torch of conical form. In the upper part hang the flaps of a large garland.

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1934, p. 268-9, fig 3.

 

In the very small uncovered area (No. 5) to the east of the Tablinum, you will find the kitchen and the latrine: almost in front of the window, the large rim of a sunken dolium used as Puteal (see note 1), marks the mouth of the cistern.

(Note 1: The empty-space of the cistern tank had caused, due to the subsidence, the sinking and the consequent hollow/depression in ground of the floor.)

 

At the rear, resting on the west wall of the tiny courtyard, are, to the right, the bench of the hearth covered with cocciopesto and with the edges of tiles, with the usual discharge arch; a thin partition divides the kitchen from the latrine, consisting of the usual recess with the encasing for the horizontal plank of wood.

 

In the south wall, was a recognizable shrine the whole of which consisted of three completely rustic niches, of which the first was of little larger than the others, within the same wall and having a shelf of rustic plaster below, formed with a fascia and cornice: found in the first niche was, resting on the wall, a terracotta relief in the shape of the bust of Kore (Fig. 3).  The third niche appeared to be cut by the dividing wall that was the east wall of the latrine.

 

Two low masonry vats covered with cocciopesto, delimited a very small area for the collection of rainwater which was conveyed into the tank below; here flowed the drippings from the roof, and resting here on the wall of the shrine, was found a group of tiles put there, of which three were perforated and with ridge tile.

 

Apart from this material, also found were a group of six terracotta vases/pots, of various forms and sizes and numerous nails and iron handles belonging to the window closings.

List of objects found (p.270)

 

Nella piccolissima area scoperta (no.5) ad oriente del tablino, si trovano allogate la cucina e la latrina: quasi davanti alla finestra il grosso orlo di un dolio infossato, adoperato come puteale (note.1), contrassegna l’orifizio della cisterna.

(Note 1:  il vuoto della canna di cisterna ha provocato, a causa del cedimento, lo sprofondarsi ed il conseguente infossamento del piano di calpestio corrispondente.)

 

In fondo, appoggiati alla parete ovest del minuscolo cortile, sono, a destra, il banco del focolare ricoperto di cocciopesto e con i margini di tegole, col solito archetto di scarico al disotto; un sottile tramezzo divide la cucina dalla latrina, costituita dal solito recesso con le incassature per l’asse orizzontale di legno. 

 

Nella parete sud, era un sacello riconoscibile nell’insieme di tre nicchiette completamente rustiche, delle quali la prima era di poco piu grande delle precedenti, ricavate entro lo stesso muro e aventi al disotto una mensola di intonaco rustico costituita da fascia e cornice: nella prima nicchietta fu rinvenuto, appoggiato al muro, un rilievo di terracotta della forma di un semicerchio ellitico, col busto di Kore (fig.3). La terza nicchietta appare tagliato dal muro divisorio che  costituisce la parete orientale della latrina.

 

Due bassi pulvini di fabbrica, rivestiti di cocciopesto, delimitano una piccolissima superficie scoperta per la raccolta delle piovane che erano convogliate nella cisterna sottostante; qui versava infatti lo stillicidio dei tetti e qui, appoggiato al muro del sacello, fu raccolto un gruppo di tegole ivi depositate, di cui tre forate e con comignolo.

 

Oltre questo materiale era un gruppo di sei vasi di terracotta, di varia forms e dimensione e ancora numerosi chiodi e maniglie di ferro appartenenti alla chiusura della finestra.

I.10.1 Pompeii. December 2006. 
Possible site of Compitum identified as being near the fountain.
See Eschebach, L., 1993. Gebäudeverzeichnis und Stadtplan der antiken Stadt Pompeji. Köln: Böhlau. (p.51)
The photos on page 119 of Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum do not show any sign of a street shrine in this location.
However, there is a note that says originally the photos were ascribed to II.2.1-5.
At II.2.1 there was a street shrine, so perhaps that is where the confusion has arisen from.
See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider, (p.119)
A graffito found, but no longer visible, above the remaining plaster on the exterior east wall, read:
Helvium
Sabinum  aed(ilem)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)     [CIL IV 7336]
