VI.14.42 Pompeii. Casa della Imperatrice di Russia.

Linked to VI.14.41. Excavated 1846 and 1876.

 

VI.14.42 Pompeii. December 2005. Entrance doorway. According to Breton, this dwelling discovered in 1846 in the presence of the princess that gave it her name. In it were found a large quantity of statues, utensils, coins and precious objects. Today, it is very ruined and offers nothing remarkable. See Breton, Ernest. 1870. Pompeia, Guide de visite a Pompei, 3rd ed. Paris, Guerin. 
Graffito found outside the doorway in February 1846 was –
Pompeium  o)(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)
Inventus  rog(at)      [CIL IV 327}
See Pagano, M. and Prisciandaro, R., 2006. Studio sulle provenienze degli oggetti rinvenuti negli scavi borbonici del regno di Napoli.  Naples: Nicola Longobardi. (p. 161). PAH II, 449.
According to Della Corte, this house, spacious and simply decorated, may have been the house of Inventus, because of an electoral recommendation found to the right of the entrance, in support of a specially favoured candidate, perhaps a neighbour, Sesto Pompeio.
Inventus rog(at)     [CIL IV 327].  See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.86)
