III.1.3 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance doorway, partly excavated
According to Della Corte, on the pilaster to the left, between III.1.2 and 3, was written -
Cn(aeum) Hel[vium] Sabin(um)
aed(ilem) Pacuvius cu[pi]dus rog(at)     [CIL IV 7595]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.342)
According to Cooley, this translates as –
Pacuvius eagerly asks for Cn. Helvius as aedile.
See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p.121, F38)
Della Corte also said that on the right pilaster, above an old plaster but brought to light by the fall of the most recent plaster, was painted a large red anchor.  He thought this may have alluded to the activity of the proprietor, perhaps in maritime commerce. Today, the anchor is no longer visible.
