V.6.1 Pompeii. December 2006. Photo showing entrance to shop.  The pillar on the right used to have a painting of Bacchus.  The pillar on the left used to have a painting of Mercury.  See Fröhlich, T., 1991, Lararien und Fassadenbilder in den Vesuvstädten.  Mainz: von Zabern.  (F34: p.318).  According to Garcia y Garcia, the loss of these paintings was attributable to the bomb that fell in the road here on the night of 16 September 1943. The paintings were photographed at the time of Sogliano, around 1906, and also by Tatiana Warscher, pre 1943. 
These can be seen in Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p. 66).
