IV.4.g Pompeii. Street shrine.

 

All the doorways on the northern side of Via Nola, forming Regio IV, have been filled in as a wall to keep the earth bank back from the road.

It is very difficult to find the exact position of these doorways and link them to any site plan.

Our numbering is IV.4.a to IV.4.h, in a west to east direction based on the Hans Eschebach plan of 1969.

Corpus Topographicum Pompeianum (CTP IIIA) excludes IV.4.f as being a window, excludes the street altar and renumbers from east to west as a to f. (p.68-9)

Liselotte Eschebach has numbered these houses from IV.4.1 to IV.4.6 plus a street altar in a niche between IV.4.5 and IV.4.6.

IV.4.f, (on left) and IV.4.g, (on right), Pompeii. May 2005. 
According to Liselotte Eschebach between f and g there was a Street Altar and niche, originally with a bench. She suggested this may be the street altar described by Fröhlich in F24. Fröhlich in turn refers to a drawing in Gell and Gandy.

IV.4.g Pompeii. Drawing of the painting found above a street altar between IV.4.f and IV.4.g. In the middle was a round altar with five small figures in long white tunics. In the centre behind the altar was a Tibicen. On either side were pairs of Vicomagistri with right arms outstretched to the altar.  Two large Lares flank the scene. In the lower zone was a serpent approaching from the left to an altar with eggs and fruit on it.
