II.2.3 Pompeii. December 2005. Entrance doorway.

According to Della Corte, found on the left of the entrance was an electoral recommendation.

He thought this confirmed the name of Athictus, as being patron of the bar.

Another found on the right of the entrance of II.2.2, was for the same person;

According to Boyce, in the east wall was a square niche with heavy projecting ledge. Its inside walls were white, bordered in red and around the top ran a stucco cornice. A similar cornice ran around three sides of the niche on the wall outside, to judge from the one side where the plaster was preserved. On the edge of the projecting shelf was a graffito. See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.379, CIL IV 8489). See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.
