VI.7.20 Pompeii. December 2006. Entrance doorway on west side of Via di Mercurio. According to Della Corte, two seals were found in this house, with the names of  two Pompeians -
L. Laelius Trophimus  (S.55)  -  the seal read  L.LAE TRO    [CIL X 8058, 44]
P. Antistius Maximus   (S3)     -  the seal read P. ANTIST
                                                                                      MAXIMI       [CIL X 8058, 5]
He thought given the presence of the seals as well as the treasure from the family of Lelio, he would not hesitate to attribute their name to the house. He would call it the house of LL. Laeli, Trophimus ed Erastus, perhaps brothers, with parents living in the one house.
Names found on the treasure were -
Laelius Erastus,     [CIL X 8071,10,11]
Laelius,                     [CIL X 8071,10,11]
Laelius                      [CIL X 8071,10,11) and note 4 on page 45.
