III.1.6 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance doorway, partly excavated
According to Della Corte, an obscure Praedicinius practiced his unknown commerce or industry here.
He came to this conclusion because of the graffito found on the pilaster on the right -
Popidium adulescentem
Praedicinius rog(at) aed(ilem)    [CIL IV 7608]
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.342)
