IX.7.5 Pompeii. Workshop of Verecundus.

Linked to IX.7.6 and IX.7.7. Partly excavated 1912.

 

IX.7.5 Pompeii. May 2006. Entrance to workshop. The felt workers or coactiliarii produced cloth by rubbing and pressing hare pelts or “dead” wool. The cloth was treated with coagulants made using boiled vinegar. 
Their work is depicted in a painting at the entrance to the workshop of Verecundus on Via dell’Abbondanza, which also made rather costly clothing.  A graffito found there mentions a tunica lintea aurata, (CIL IV 9083). This was a garment made of linen with inserts made of spun gold. See Panetta, M.R. (2004). Pompeii, the history,life and art of the buried city. Italy, White Star Publishers, (p.169)
