IX.12.2 Pompeii. December 2005. Entrance, leading to stairs to upper floor. According to Boyce, on the south side (front) pilaster, visible on the right of the photo, was a painting of Mercury. This was on the pilaster to the right of the entrance to the stairs leading from the street to the upper floor. Mercury was shown with a serpent at his feet coiled around an omphalos; the painting on the opposite pilaster had disappeared.  Not. Scavi, 1912, 144f.  See Boyce G. K., 1937.

According to Varone and Stefani, found on the pilaster, on the left, between IX.12.1 and IX.12.2 were CIL IV 7896 and 7897. On the right of the doorway, also found were CIL IV 7898, 7900 and 7903. In the photo on page 443, a plaster-cast of the stairs in situ was made, and can be seen. See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009.

According to Della Corte, he thought this was a textrina, of an unknown Rufus, who was mentioned in an electoral recommendation. This was CIL IV 7903, found on the pilaster to the right of the stairs. Not least interesting were the plaster-casts of the stairs, of the wall and door of the latrine, and of the entrance door to a room to the north. All plaster-casts that were destroyed in the bombing.
