IX.1.5 Pompeii. Officina L. Livi Firmi. Workshop (perhaps incorporating private house).

Excavated 1856. (Strada Stabiana 76).

 

According to Fiorelli –

“L’officina che sta appresso, mostra accanto alla porta un’insegna di pietra tofacea, esibente varii strumenti di fabri ferrarii. Essa ha l’androne che introduce in un’area scoverta, seguita da una seconda area rustica, ch’e costeggiata da pilastri laterizii, due de’quali reggevano una tettoia, nel cui muro di fronte vedesi una grossa fistula di piombo per raccogliere le acque dei lastrici vicini, e condurle in un canale sotterraneo uscente sulla pubblica via. Una anfractum che vi e annessa mena ad altra rustica localita, contenente forse la latrina”.

(translation -The workshop, which comes after, shows a sign next to the door of tufa stone, exhibiting various tools of a blacksmith ? (fabri ferrarii).

It has an entrance hall which leads into an uncovered area, followed by a second rustic area that is edged with brick pillars, two of which held up a roof, facing which, a large lead pipe is seen in the wall to collect waters from nearby slabs, and lead them into an underground channel exiting onto the public road.  An anfractum that is annexed here leads to another rustic locality, containing perhaps the latrine.)

According to Della Corte –

“This was a large workshop, in part covered with a roof, but it is not clear what material was worked here. 

Fiorelli’s opinion, of a blacksmith, was deduced from the notion given by the tufa plaque, found set in the brickwork to the right of the entrance and in which, near to the usual sign against the charm (evil eye), we see some instruments of the trade of an iron maker. 

In a seal/signet found here: L. Livi Firmi.”  (S.57 with Note 2)
