VIII.4.27 Pompeii.  December 2006. Looking west towards atrium converted to bakery. Della Corte said this was an ancient atrium, made into a bakery together with the adjoining dwelling. At the time of the eruption it was probably in the possession of a man named Felix, known because of an electoral recommendation. Found written to the left of the entrance:  Felix rog(at)  [CIL IV 1008].

VIII.4.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Looking south from south portico of VIII.4.15, onto lower level. The remains of one of the four columns of VIII.4.15 (?) is lying on the grass, which would have been the peristyle area belonging to VIII.4.27. VIII.4.27’s rear entrance at VIII.4.29 is on the south side of peristyle.  According to Boyce, in this peristyle high up on the north wall was an arched niche.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.76).
According to Jashemski, 
“The garden at the rear of the house had a portico on the east supported by two columns. 
There was an arched niche high up on the north wall. A passageway at the south-west corner at the rear of the garden led to the street, directly across from the Temple of Isis”.
See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.214).
