III.3.1 Pompeii. December 2007. Graffiti or inscription on west pilaster, the left side of the front wall.    According to Varone and Stefani, this faded painted graffito was CIL IV 7638.  They add the note that V O F as found in 7638 (and not O V F as is usually found) was also found in CIL IV 7889 in a different place.  Also on the same pilaster was CIL IV 7640.  According to Varone and Stefani, on the right pilaster, between III.3.1 and III.3.2 would have been – CIL IV 7642 and 7643.  Only a very faint outline exists of CIL IV 7638, none of the others are conserved.   See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider, (p.242-244 with photos).
Della Corte says that there are two recommendations written on the entrance:
Tigil(lus) fa[cit]     [CIL IV 7639]
[Ti]gi[ll]us, Veterarius, rogat    [CIL IV 7643]   (this has a note that Diehl, no.961 proposed the name as being Epictetus)
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p. 350)
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), these read as –
