I.19.4 Pompeii. This entrance may have provided access to House of Earinus.

(Only the street fronts have been excavated, c.1932-34 see CTP IIIA, p.34)

Originally, this Insula was numbered as Reg. I, Insula 11, and then altered to Reg I, Insula 19).

 

I.19.4 Pompeii. September 2005. Entrance doorway, looking south.
According to Della Corte, an electoral recommendation written to the left of the entrance doorway, proved that a certain Earinus lived here. [CIL IV 7387]
Another recommendation found here mentioned a new interesting facetious group of electors, written to discredit the unknown candidate.
Unfortunately, only the second line of it was readable. “Drapetae omnes (rogant)” 
The translation of the “Drapetae” would have been “the fugitive or runaway slaves”!  [CIL IV 7389]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.306)
