VII.6.28 Pompeii. Casa del Peristilio or House of Secundus Tyrannus Fortunatus?

Linked to VII.6.19 and VII.6.20. Excavated 1762, 1808, 1868, 1873 and 1910.

Destroyed by bombing on 13th September 1943 at 17.30hrs.

 

According to Garcia y Garcia Region VII, Insula VI was one of the insulae most devastated over the years since its excavation.

He calls it the “Cinderella” of Pompeii. Between the years 1759 and 1762 it was vandalised and stripped by the Bourbons, then re-interred.

Then came the slow and non-systematic uncovering again before the final destruction in September 1943.

The area was ignored and abandoned during the years following the war, which reduced the insula to a heap of bricks and masonry.

According to Boyce, near the south-west corner of the peristyle stood a rectangular masonry altar, coated with stucco.
On the top of it, traces of burning were visible at the time of excavation.
He also said that holes found in the earth near the altar were explained by Spano (Not.Scavi) as being the decomposed roots of a large tree.
Spano thought this may have been an arbour sacra, which may have been honoured by sacrifice upon the altar.
