According to Della Corte,  “Reg. II, ins.1, on high between doorways 1 and 2, a window was found (0.80m wide x 1.20m high), protected by a grating which remains in its place in reasonable state of preservation; beyond the described window and continuing towards the east, and it seems placed above doorways 2 and 3, a large roof was found a little knocked down from its original position, about 6m. long (but the eastern extremity was not yet discovered), and protruding by just over 2m.  At the rear of the wall of the façade of doorway 1, definitely in their place were the remains of the basins/tubs mentioned last month, putting all the fragments of one of them back into its place with its bottom. "

According to Della Corte, on the wall between the doorways 1 and 2, high on the zoccolo, appeared the following programma, recommending C. Cuspio Pansa (written in black).

 

C(aium) C(uspium) P(ansam) / aed(ilem) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7404]

C(aium) C(uspium) P(ansam) / aed(ilem) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7404]

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1913, (p.255).

See Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (www.manfredclauss.de).

 

Above the zoccolo, to the left of the entrance doorway, above the rustic plaster the following electoral programmata painted in black came back to light –

 

Helvium Sabin//um / aed(ilem) d(ignum) r(ei) p(ublicae) v(iis) a(edibus) s(acris) p(ublicis) p(rocurandis) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7399]
L() Popidium Secund//um / aed(ilem) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7400]

Helvium Sabin//um / aed(ilem) d(ignum) r(ei) p(ublicae) v(iis) a(edibus) s(acris) p(ublicis) p(rocurandis) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7399]

L() Popidium Secund//um / aed(ilem) o(ro) v(os) f(aciatis) [CIL IV, 7400]

 

The two transcribed programma above covered an older third, preserved only in its right half:

 

[C(aium) Gavium Rufum] et Trebium Valentem / [3]tigfiicuin cuncti rog(ant) [CIL IV, 7401] in red

[C(aium) Gavium Rufum] et Trebium Valentem / [3]tigfiicuin cuncti rog(ant) [CIL IV, 7401]

 

Under this last, the remains of another programma was noticed -

 

Vibium] Severum [CIL IV, 7402]in red

 [Vibium] Severum [CIL IV, 7402]

 

As well as another, under the older part-preserved programma, which showed this small graffitied inscription –

 

Aeliam [CIL IV, 8430]
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1913, p.255.

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1913, p.255.

See Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (www.manfredclauss.de).

 

And at the extreme edge of the same wall, one could see a name traced by a less expert hand -

 

T{e}rebium [CIL IV, 7402]
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1913, (p.253)
 in red

See Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (www.manfredclauss.de).

 

23rd September 1913, according to Della Corte, on the black zoccolo (plinth) between the doorways 1 and 2, but lower down, the following graffito was seen -

 

Saturnali(s) / locus [CIL IV, 8433]
Gaphyri / locus [CIL IV, 8432]
 in red

Saturnali(s) / locus [CIL IV, 8433]

Gaphyri / locus [CIL IV, 8432]

 

and here too, high up on the extreme left, the usual graffito –

 

Naturae [CIL IV, 8431]

I.11.1 Pompeii. May 2015. South wall of the cubiculum. Photo courtesy of Buzz Ferebee.  “The room to the east of the thermopolium, (room b) and communicating with it, was a cubiculum with rather neglected decorations of the IV Style, where only a few fragments of the barrelled ceiling could be recovered.  On the eastern side was the recess for the bed and, in the cocciopesto floor, a central decoration of a chessboard in diamond shapes, made with minute white marble tesserae.   In the centre of the largest panels of the walls were three medallions of 0.28m diam.   In the south wall, the head of Diana with diadem facing front, with bow raised high in the left hand, and quiver behind the right shoulder, and the other two from the north wall were of the head of Bacchus, crowned with vine leaves facing front, and with slender staff on the right shoulder, and of nude Apollo in threequarters looking right, with his lyre held between his hands.  In the smaller space (east wall), flying towards the centre, two naked Cupids, one holding   a long lamp and a tray, and the other something like an umbrella.”
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1913, p.249-50.
(L’ambiente ad est del termopolio, e con esso comunicante (b), era un cubicolo con decorazioni piuttosto trascurate di IV stile, del cui soffitto a botte soltanto pochi frammenti si sono potuto recuperare. Nel lato orientale era il rincasso per il letto e, nel pavimento di cocciopesto, una scacchiera centrale a reticella di rombi, fatta con tesserae minute di marmo bianco. Al centro dei maggiori riquadri delle pareti, tre medaglioni di 0.28m di diam. esibiscono l’uno (parete sud) il busto di Diana, di fronte, diademata, con arco nella sinistra levata in alto e turcasso dietro la spalla destra, e gli altri due (parete nord) i busti di Bacco di fronte, coronato di foglie di vite e con esile tirso sulla spalla destra, e di Apollo, in terza a destra, nudo, con la cetra stretta fra le mani.
 Negli spazi minori (parete est) convergono, volando verso il centro, due Eroti nudi, reggenti l’uno una lunga face e un vassoio, e l’altro come un ombrello.)

Street altar on west side wall of I.11.1, September 2005.

According to Della Corte, found written in charcoal probably by a passer-by was CIL IV 8426:
[Per] Lares sanctos rogo tu et…… [CIL IV 8426]
This was written, approximately in the left top corner of the photo, although none of the wording has been conserved.

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) it read as -
[Per] Lares Sanctos 
rogo te ut [                  [CIL IV 8426]

According to Cooley, CIL IV 8426, appears to the left of a street corner shrine, where a painting of a Lar and a snake can still be faintly seen.
On top of the altar were found the carbonised remains of a sacrifice of a chicken.
She translates the wording as  –
“By the sacred Lares, I ask you …..”  [CIL IV 8426]
