VII.14.15 Pompeii. House of L. Caecilius Communis or House of M. Stronnius Favorinus?

Linked to VII.14.14 and VII.14.16. Excavated 1840 and 1862. (Vico del Lupanare 32).

You will note the names L. Caecili Communis and M. Stron Favor also appear on house VII.13.14.

Two separate bronze seals were found embossed with these names, although there seems to be some confusion over their actual find location.
