VI.7.6 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 2, looking south across cubiculum.
According to Varone, CIL IV 1410 was found on one of the walls of this cubiculum. It was next to a painting of a serpent, bringer of good fortune, found in 1835.
Venus enim
plagiaria
est  quia exsanguni
meum petit
in vies tumultu
pariet   optet
sibi ut bene
naviget 
quod et
Ario sua r(ogat)    [CIL IV 1410]
Varone translated this as –
Venus is a weaver of webs; from the moment that she sets out to attack my dearest, she will lay temptations along his way: he must hope for a good voyage, which is also the wish of his Ario.
