I.3.24 Pompeii. December 2006. Entrance on corner of  Vicolo del Menandro.  According to Della Corte, on the wall on both sides of the entrance were paintings of Mercury and Hercules. He thought the house belonged to the unknown Capella, because of the graffiti, still partly legible in the 1960’s. On the left of the entrance:

L(ucium)  Ceium  Secundum  aed(ilem)
Cape
lla  rog(at)       [CIL IV 2993g]
