IX.4.1 Pompeii. Corner shop. Linked to IX.4.22.

Excavated 1843, 1847 and 1877. (Strada Stabiana 2).

EX.K.QUI is cut into the pavement outside the shop.

 

IX.4.1 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance, looking east from Via Stabiana, towards rear rooms. 
According to Maiuri, three of the shops on the corner of this insula, appear to have had an elevated threshold of at least 0.80m above the floor of the sidewalk and what should have been the original threshold. They clearly distinguish the brickwork/masonry of the above elevation from the original floor of the threshold. In the third taberna (from the corner of the quadrivium) IX.4.3, only one block of the threshold appears located in its place.

IX.4.1 Pompeii. December 2007. Shop on the corner of Via Nola and Via Stabiana.

EX.K.QUI is cut into the pavement at white patch in bottom centre of picture.

 

EX.K.QUI cut into the edge of the pavement outside IX.4.1 Pompeii. Ex Kalendis Quictilibus which means “From the first day of July”.  According to Mau this apparently relates to the laying of pavement and must go back before 44BC when the month QUINCTILUS was changed to IULIUS, our July.  Pompeii was therefore paved before 44BC.  See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.228).
