VI.17 and VII.16 Pompeii Insula Occidentalis. Miscellaneous paintings and unprovenanced items.

Plans

 

The haphazard method of excavation and imprecise locations given mean that we do not know the exact location of the ancient houses in relation to the Cuomo and Irace properties.

VII.6 was definitely under the Irace property, as was possibly VII.16.

The Cuomo property was north of this, which would include VI.17.

These plans are to help you with the items on this page.

They are very large in order to show the detail, and so will take longer to load than our usual plans. They will load in a separate window.

Excavations

 

By the end of 1759, the excavations had moved over to the western edge of Pompeii, and they had begun to explore beneath the lands of the Irace and Cuomo families.

PAH 1, 51, addendum 137 dated 21st May 1757, says “Begun the excavations in the Masseria d’Irace.

This Masseria extended from the Doric Temple in the Triangular Forum (VIII.7) westwards towards the western gate of Pompeii, and from the Royal Road where the Taverna del Rapillo was situated to the south, until the Masseria di D. Filippo Porpora and Giosue Vajano: towards the north in a parallel line, where today the Temple of the Fortuna and the road that borders it are exposed, running towards the east.”

 

Prior to digging in this area, from 1757 they had been excavating, still under the Irace lands but more towards VIII.2, moving across VIII.2 in a north-westerly direction and by February 1759 digging in the area of VII.16.22 (Fabius Rufus) on the edge of the Irace property. This area was described as “in the same steep place in front to the royal road” and “on the hill overlooking the royal road”.

 

On 13th October 1759, a large wall painting from VI.17.41, together with other paintings from the north and east walls of the same room (nap 9847, 9258, 9291) can be identified.

 

On 9th February 1760, excavations were begun in the Masseria of Diego Cuomo, which was attached to that of Irace, on its northern side.

 

On 23rd February 1760, PAH (1,1,p.104) reported “work continues partly in the Irace property and partly in that of Cuomo”.

 

At this stage some of the excavations were being carried out from pits or holes dug down into the lapilli, once the pits were dug out, some of them were then continued by digging tunnels around the area.  These then would have been filled in again using the spoil from another hole or tunnel.

Many precious items that were found, beautiful paintings, wall plaster (even parts of complete walls) and mosaics have no exact provenance because, at this stage, there was no way of identifying exactly where they were digging in relation to anything else. There was not a lot of interest in the actual location of the finds, other than to pinpoint the area in the hope of finding more. The early excavators were only interested in finding treasures, paintings, golden, silver or bronze objects, and mosaics; all of these destined for the King’s new royal museum at Portici.

 

The King also only wanted prestigious and unique items, once too many objects or paintings of the same type had been found, many of them were destroyed on the walls, or thrown down and broken into the earth. Many of the paintings were not considered good enough, and they too were defaced. Nothing that could be stolen or used elsewhere was allowed to remain complete, thereby keeping the value and the uniqueness of the ones in the royal possession.

 

However, some of these items were given away to visiting dignitaries, and in that way were spread around the Courts of Europe, but always making sure the ones held by the King, were the best.  These now are the world famous paintings and items held in the Naples Museum.

 

From VI.17.41 (or VI.17.42, or VII.16.22 or even VI.17.32-36) the excavators moved south-east towards the area of VII.6.3. and VII.6.38, (these being under the Irace property).

 

The Cuomo property must have been to the north of this, the most notable finds from here came in April and May 1760 when a painted frieze of tondi with busts of the gods representing the days of the week, the months and the seasons were removed in several sections from a large room which was painted with a yellow background. 

 

Paintings found under the Cuomo property.

 

Pompeii Insula Occidentalis. Tondi (round medallions) found in May 1760 in the same room at Civita.
The information on the tondi given by AdE 3, p. 257-263 was quite detailed.
“A room was found in May 1760 in the excavations of the City whose walls were all painted yellow, and around these walls, at the height of about 1.58m from the ground, the tondi were painted, and other tondi: 
- Placed in order on a wall were the seven tondi of the days of the week, which luckily were found in their entirety, as here you see recorded, with all the fascia of the plaster, which also was entirely preserved in the original painting: 
- The tondi of the other walls were for the most part missing in the plaster, or totally lost their colour:
-  In order that it is worthwhile, the drawings of the broken off fragments, that are observed here, unified or divided, are precisely as are the original pieces of the plaster.”

By July 1760, the excavators had returned to the Irace property and by the last months of 1760, the excavators were once more in the Cuomo property, (according to PAH 1,1,115-7, 2nd August – 6th September 1760, excavations took place on the properties belonging to De Fillipis, Imperato, and Balzano (also known as the Cuomo/Balzano property – Balzano was the tenant at this time), but when the “pickings” dwindled to a stand-still, attention was once more turned southwards towards the Irace property, where they discovered the atrium of the house where the statue of Diana had been found (VII.6.3).

According to Parslow, “further tunnelling in this area over the next year led to more spectacular finds, (VII.6.38 lararium PAH 1, 1, 133 6th June 1761, and VII.6.7 large garden painting of Venus, PAH 1, 1, 140 6th March 1762) and eventually led to a shift towards open-air trenches as the preferred means of excavating this area.”

See Parslow, C.C. (1998). Rediscovering Antiquity: Karl Weber and the Excavation of Herculaneum, Pompeii and Stabiae. UK, Cambridge UP

 

In mid-December 1762 excavations resumed on the Cuomo property where an ancient paved street had been found.

In September 1763, the north side of the Herculaneum gate was found, affirming the importance of the street.

As a consequence of this, the gate’s facade and the three tombs situated immediately outside were not reburied and so became the first Pompeian monuments left permanently exposed.

 

On the 11th February 1764, at the Masseria of Natale Adevico, in the vicinity of the ancient Gate, two rooms were found together with 13 fragments of fallen plaster.

(According to a report from Weber to Alcubierre, these were from the fondo Cuomo).

According to Pagano and Prisciandaro, some of the fragments are shown below, and they provenance these fragments from VI.17.9-10, together with others found there in August 1778. By March 1764, the Villa of Cicero was also being excavated.

Paintings found under the Irace property

 

By July 1760, the excavators had returned to the Irace property and removed a set of three panel paintings.

One was the myth of Phryxis and Helle, another was the Hermaphrodite and Satyr, and the third was the Three Graces. 

From a nearby colonnaded garden (VII.6.3), came the marble statue of Diana on the 19th July 1760,
