Drawing of façade of III.3.6 on Via dell’Abbondanza. 
The façade, partially destroyed in the bombing of 1943, had an unusual feature.
The wide doorway was closed by a low wooden wall of lattice-like construction (faithfully reconstructed).
There was a triangular pediment on the top. 

According to Varone and Stefani, on the pilaster to the west of the doorway, on the left of the photo, were found –
CIL IV 7654, 7655 and 7656, see below.
Under the trophy wall painting on the west side of the doorway was CIL IV 7657, see below.
Under the trophy wall painting on the east side of the doorway were CIL IV 7658, 7659 and 7660, see below.
None of these have been conserved.
See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider, (p.246-251 with photos).

On the east (on the right) doorpost and on the exterior wall in the neighbouring vicolo, Della Corte also mentions
CIL IV 7665 and 7666. Under CIL IV 7666, he quoted another CIL IV 8841.
See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.351-355).
See Varone, A., 2002. Erotica Pompeiana: Love Inscriptions on the Walls of Pompeii, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider. (p.138, for description of CIL IV 8841).

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) these CIL IV’s read as -

III.3.6 Pompeii. 1944. Bomb damage. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer.

According to Garcia y Garcia, the same bomb that damaged the nearby shops at III.3.3, 4 and 5 also damaged this west wall.
This led to the total loss of the IV style wall paintings on the west wall.
The two beautiful trophy wall paintings on the left and right pilasters of the entrance, were also affected.
The one on the right was totally annihilated whereas the one on the left was partly saved but is now badly faded and unreadable (in 2006 when book written).
A plastercast of a cupboard against the wall to the right of the entrance, together with the partial plastercast of the impression of the doorway gate were destroyed.
