Street wall outside of I.13.1 on Via dell’Abbondanza. December 2007.
According to Della Corte, two electoral recommendations were found written on both sides of the entrance –
Crescens rog(at)   [CIL IV 7448]
Crescens cupidus rog(at)    [CIL IV 7455]
He thought these proved the owner of the house was probably a Crescens (and most likely Crassius).
There was a third recommendation written to the left of entrance number l.13.3 –  Crescens rog(at)    [CIL IV 7462]  See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.355)
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), these read as -
L(ucium)  Ovidium 
aed(ilem)  Crescens  rog(at)      [CIL IV 7448]
Trebium  et  Rufum 
aed(iles)  o(ro)  v(os)  Crescens  cupidus  rog(at)      [CIL IV 7455]
Cn(aeum)  Helvium  Sabin(um) 
aed(ilem)  Crescens  rog(at)       [CIL IV 7462]
