IX.9.g Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance doorway, looking east. According to NdS, this was the doorway to a modest house but had a painting advertising that this was the house of a “painter of electoral programmata”. The doorway led directly into the small atrium which had an attic above, as in the previous house (IX.9.f). The upstairs room had a balcony which jutted out into the roadway, but this had completely fallen when found.
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1891, p.264.
According to NdS, a graffito was found written in charcoal, on the inner surface of the right doorjamb. The doorjamb was faced with yellow painted plaster imitating coloured marble. The graffito showed  -

….. xL xxxC • xLx
According to Sogliano, a drawing found on the right doorjamb showed a male figure in black outline (0.16 high). This was drawn almost from behind his shoulders, stretching his right hand forward, as if in the act of signing something on the wall, and was perceived certainly to be Aemilius Celer, shown in the act of painting slogans on the house-walls of Pompeii. Underneath in black letters, nearly vanished, was the wording - aemiliVS CELER.
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1888, p.520 (recorded as being from IX.7, near the seventh doorway in the side street)

IX.9.g Pompeii. March 2009.  Looking east across small atrium, to doorway to rustic cubiculum (on left), and area of light-yard, (behind the atrium on the right). According to NdS, the atrium was of an irregular shape. In the middle of the front of the atrium was the cistern, the mouth of which was covered by a terracotta puteal. On the right of the entrance was a cubiculum with a high window overlooking the roadway. On the left was the latrine and the base of the Sarno stone staircase, by which one went up to the upper room and balcony.  Opposite on the east side of the atrium was another rustic cubiculum.
In the south-west corner of the atrium, a small hearth protected by a vaulted roof was found. This kitchen area was formed by the east wall of the cubiculum, the south wall of the atrium, and the wall of the impluvium.  The impluvium was placed against the south wall of the atrium.

IX.9.g Pompeii. March 2009.   Looking south into doorway into cubiculum on south side of entrance atrium. On the left would be the east wall of the cubiculum, and straight ahead would be the south wall. The small hearth in the kitchen area would have been in the area behind the east wall, on the left. Boyce’s west wall would have been the other side of this “east wall”. According to Boyce, the hearth stood against the south wall of the atrium and on the west wall near it was the lararium painting.  Found in the cubiculum on the right of the entrance doorway was a small altar composed of a terracotta cylinder supporting a square plate of travertine.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.94, no.469) 
According to Giacobello, on the south wall of kitchen (e) was a lararium painting (not conserved). Perhaps this does not apply to this house, as it is headed IX.9.7, (IX.9.g?)
