VII.2.45 Pompeii. September 2005. Doorway to first room on west side of atrium.
This is a narrow room with a further room on its south side with two high windows out on to the street.
According to Fiorelli, in the atrium of VII.2.45 on the left towards the doorway leading into VII.2.44, was the graffito, CIL IV 1679:
According to Della Corte, the graffito was found on the pilaster to the left of the room joining with the atrium of Colepio:  
Calos (H)edone.  Valeat qui legerit.  (H)edone dicit: Assibus (singulis) hic bibitur; dupundium si dederis, meliora bibes; qua(rtum) (assem) si dederis, vina Falerna bibes.    [CIL IV 1679]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p. 180)

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) it read as:

Invicte castre(n)se 
habeas propiteos 
deos tu(c)<a=O>stresit 
e et qui leges 
calos (H)edone 
valeat qui legerit 
(H)edone dicit 
assibus hic 
bibitur dipundium 
si dederis meliora 
bibes quatt<u=O>s 
si dederis vina(m) 
Falerna(m) bib(es)     [CIL IV 1679]

According to the translation found in Pompeii, the history, life and art of the buried city, edited by Panetta, M. R, (page 231), this graffiti was found at the entrance to Hedone’s tavern:
Hedone says “You can get a drink here for only one coin.  You can drink better wine for two coins.  You can drink Falernian for four coins”. [CIL IV 1679]

According to Cooley, the graffito was found in the bar at VII.2.44, and the translation:
Hedone says, “You can drink here for one as, if you give two, you will drink better; if you give four, you will drink Falernian.”  [CIL IV 1679]
