VI.16.20 Pompeii. Statio Vindemitorum. Grape gatherers post?

Linked to VI.16.21, VI.16.22, VI.16.23 and VI.16.24. Excavated 1904.

 

VI.16.20 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking west to entrance doorway. According to NdS, this rather narrow doorway led into a room that had a doorway in its north-west corner that communicated with the other rooms in VI.16.21/22/23/24. According to Sogliano, at one time the doorway to number 20 would have had a wooden threshold and perhaps also wooden doorjambs. The floor was of cocciopesto, and the wall dado was covered with red plaster. The walls were divided into the usual panels and pilasters on a yellow background.
The upper part was painted with white plaster. In the central panel on the south wall, on a red background one could see a painting of a deer being chased by a dog, enclosed in a rectangular cornice. On the opposite wall, one could still observe the lower part of a black cornice belonging to a painting that had been destroyed. The doorway into the adjoining rooms also would have had wooden doorjambs. See Notizie degli Scavi, 1908, (p.182)
