IX.2.11 Pompeii. Taberna Attiorum 1. Excavated 1851. (Strada Stabiana 64).

 

According to PPM, IX.2.11/12 and possibly IX.2.13 all belonged to the same complex.

IX.2.11 and IX.2.12 was defined as Tabernae Attiorum, in which the Attii brothers made colours and sold their products.

Between 13th and 16th August 1851 numerous blocks were found, recorded colours were light and dark yellow, red, white and pieces defined as “smalto” blue.

Also found was white pigment, probably with a base of lead stamped with the seal Attioru, the presence of numerous mortars, pestles, and weights confirmed that in this place the pigments were made as well as sold.
