According to this information board –
“The fullonica of Stephanus was discovered between 1912 and 1914, during excavations along Via dell’Abbondanza. 
It is one of the most important and complete laundries found in Pompeii with large masonry tanks to rinse fabrics, fed by a continuous flow of water, stone basins for washing and cleaning with special types of clay and urine, upstairs terraces for drying and brushing clothes after washing, and finally, as a sign of top service, a pressing machine (torcular) to stretch and light up garments and fabrics.”
And -
“La fullonica di Stephanus venne portata in luce  tra il 1912 e il 1914 nel corso degli scavi lungo Via dell’Abbondanza. 
E’una delle piu importanti e complete lavanderie scoperte a Pompei, dotata di grandi vasche in muratura per risciacquare, alimentate da un flusso d’acqua ininterrotto, di bacini in pietra per il lavaggio e la smacchiatura con l’utilizzo di particolari tipi di argilla o di orina, di terrazza al piano superior adibite all’asciugatura e ai trattamenti delle stoffe dopo il lavaggio, e infine, indice di particolare qualita del servizio offerto, di una pressa (torcular) con cui il tessuto veniva stirato e reso brillante.”

I.6.7 Pompeii. May 2010. Painted graffiti on west (right) side of entrance doorway.  According to Varone and Stefani, on the west side of the entrance were many painted electoral recommendations:
CIL IV 7164, 7165, 7168, 7172, 7166, 7167, 7169, 7173 and 7171.
