I.4.28 Pompeii. December 2007. Entrance.  When first excavated, there was a painted graffito written in red on the left pilaster of the entrance doorway -
Cn(aeum)  Helvium
Sabinum  aed(ilem)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)
L  Ceium  Secundum  IIvir(um)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)
Recepta nec  sine thalamo   (CIL IV 1083)
See Pagano, M. and Prisciandaro, R., 2006. Studio sulle provenienze degli oggetti rinvenuti negli scavi borbonici del regno di Napoli.  Naples : Nicola Longobardi. (p.169)
According to Cooley,
I beg you to elect Cn. Helvius Sabinus aedile and L. Ceius Secundus duumvir, Recepta and also Thalamus. (CIL IV 1083)
See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p. 124, F67)

Della Corte said this part of the grand house was the rustic part, containing the stables and the dormitories for servants.
This dwelling was possibly under the vigilance of a procurator (or manager) called Thalamus, and his companion called Recepta.
He said the recommendation was found to the right of the entrance.
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p. 266)

Also Cooley says somewhere on the wall of the south side of the insula I.4, the following recommendation was found:
Helvium
Sabinum
aed(ilem) Dormis    [CIL IV 2993t]
She translates this as 
Wake up and vote for Helvius Sabinus for aedile   (CIL IV 2993t)
See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p.124, F71)
