IX.2.12 Pompeii. Taberna Attiorum 2. Excavated 1851. (Strada Stabiana 66).

 

According to PPM, IX.2.11/12 and possibly IX.2.13 all belonged to the same complex.

IX.2.11 and IX.2.12 are defined as Tabernae Attiorum, in which the Attii brothers made colours and sold their products.

Between 13th and 16th August 1851 numerous blocks were found, in which were colours, light and dark yellow, red, white and pieces defined as “smalto” blue.

Also found was white pigment, probably with a base of lead stamped with the seal Attiorv, the presence of numerous mortars, pestles, and weights confirmed that in this place the pigments were made as well as sold.

See also Rivista di Studi Pompeiani, 1999, article by M. Tuffreau-Libre: Les pots a couleur de Pompei: premiers resultats, p.63-70.

On p.67, the block of colour with the mark Attiorv is said to be In the Naples Museum, with inventory number 112228.

According to Della Corte, the impression of the seal on its block of pigment, ATTIORV, is numbered as CIL X, 8058,6.
