III.4.2 Pompeii. House of C. Arrius Crescens, T. Arrius Polites and M. Arrius Polites, Arrius Stephanus.

Linked to III.4.3, Casa del Moralista or House of the Moralist.

 

III.4.2 and III.4.3 are joined together and in addition the original entrance to III.4.3 shown on the Eschebach plan has been bricked up and converted to a window. 

A new entrance is further west but gives access to both houses. 

As a result we have combined the pictures of the two houses. 

A combined room plan for III.4.2 and III.4.3 and combined pictures of both houses can be found on the pages for III.4.3.

On the left of the photo are the remains of the Oscan Eituns.

 

III.4.2  Pompeii. December 2007.  Remains of Oscan Eituns, to left of entrance, described as partially conserved. See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider, (p.257-259 with photos). 
See Antonini, R., in Quaderni di Studi Pompeiani 1/2007. Assoc. Internazionale Amici di Pompei, (p.47-114) for Eituns No. 6, VE28, p.48.
According to Garcia y Garcia, most damaging was the loss of the Oscan Eituns found in 1915 on the external wall to the left of the entrance doorway, because of the fall of the fragile plaster due to the bombardment in 1943.  Both the houses at nos 2 and 3 sustained severe bomb damage in September 1943, part of the west wall of the garden collapsed, ceilings and rooms on the upper storey were demolished, while wall paintings suffered heavily. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.56-58 - 7 photos before & after the bombing, and after restoration,  description of damage, p 56)
