HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006. South-west side of small courtyard in baths complex. According to Mau, on the left is a doorway to the apodyterium, and in the centre is a doorway to a storeroom.
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey, F. W., Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 356). According to Breton, the doorway on the left would have led to the frigidarium, and the doorway in the centre would have led to the apodyterium or changing room. See Breton, Ernest. 1870.

HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006.

Apodyterium or changing room (or frigidarium) in baths complex, with doorway in south-east corner leading to tepidarium.

(Fontaine, room 3,2 in baths’ area).

 

From PAH 1,1, p.263, 15th February 1772, addendum p, 126 and 158: (see no.33 below, on the plan by La Vega).

Continuing the excavation in the said dwelling, we have evacuated a room with floor of white and black mosaic, and plaster painted with panels and arabesques of the usual grotesque style. Here we have found 40 pieces of plain/flat glass, as if it would have been used for a window of a considerable size, and a bronze half hinge. 

 

From PAH, addendum, p.126 –

In questa stanza, come ora mi ricordo, si trovarono alcuni pezzami di vetro rotto, ed un pezzo di sciva di bronzo.”

HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006. Baths complex.

HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006. Tepidarium in baths complex, looking south to window.

On the left, a doorway leading to the caldarium (or stufa) can be seen.

(Fontaine, room 3,3 in baths’ area).

 

From PAH 1,1, p.267, 7th November 1772.

We continue as in the past week to lift the earth laterally of the main apartment of the said dwelling, and have begun to free two rooms, where we hope to find some things.

 

From PAH 1,1, p.267, 14th November 1772 and addendum p. 128 and 158. (see nos. 55, 56, 57, 58 below, on the plan by La Vega).

Working at the uncovering of those two rooms, which we know would have been used as baths.

The inside one was a bath-room faced all around with large tiles, which were some distance out from the wall, leaving an area where the heat from the furnace could ascend, with which it must have been connected; the tiles were covered with white plaster with some panels coloured red. From one side of this same room, there was a niche, with vault decorated with stucco in the shape of shells, and various fronds and figures; in this niche there was a small window with two small lead pipes, of which we will know the use when we have emptied the inside. In the side of the same room facing the niche, there was a mound of masonry, which we know would have been faced with marble, as it would have been all around the zoccolo. The other discovered room was painted with some paintings, landscapes, vases, etc, on a red background.

To the left we found the glass, despite it being broken you could tell the manner of how it would have been situated, by the mark left in the earth, and all the wood that made up the closure of the window.  In the wall that divided these two rooms, there was a round hole where one would have put a lamp, to unite the two rooms.  From the area of the stufa, the hole was closed by a screen (un telaretto), and there was a hole that went up through the wall as far as the outside air, so the fumes could exit.

One also sees above the opening, the smoke from the light that was here.

The floor of these two rooms was of mosaic. In the room in front of the stufa, the shape of a basket was stamped into the earth, and the following pieces were found, furnished with bronze;

Two entire hinges, another half hinge. A ring with an eye. Two keyhole guards holed in the centre. A nail, and a piece worked as a head of hair. (Un chiodo, ed un pezzetto lavorato come con capigliatura).

 

From PAH, addendum, p.128 –

 “No.55. A di 13 novembre 1772. Si e trovata una vetrata di 4 piastre di vetro, ma tutta rotta, senza essere spostata dal suo luogo, eesendo tenuta dalla stessa rivegine; si e trovato pure in quello finestra, dalla parte interna, due scive di bronzo”.

“No.56. Nella stessa stanza di sopra, e propriamente in terra si trovo la forma di un canestro”.

 

From PAH addendum, p.158 - 14 Novembre 1772.

Appartamento del bagno. Stufa; no.57 pianta di La Vega.

Altra stanza, il tepidario, con finestra di vetri; no. 55 pianta di La Vega.Impressione lasciata nel terreno della detta finestra con suoi vetri.

Luogo ove si situava la lucerna per illuminare le dette due stanze; no. 58 pianta di La Vega.

Pavimenti di musaico. No. 56 pianta di La Vega.

 

From PAH 1,1, p.267-8, 21st November 1772. (see no. 59 below, on the plan by La Vega).

Lifting the soil from the exterior of the room of the baths which we had found glazed, we observed particularly the mark of the wooden shutter that secured the window from outside, which was closed with a hinge of which was found the plate of bronze and its hinge; we also lifted two hinges of the same metal which have been sent to the Royal Museum together with the glass removed from the noted window, with many other flat/plain pieces, which were found shattered in the room of the stufa, knowing well that also the windows of this room were provided with glazing.

 

From PAH, addendum, p.128 –

 “No.59. A di 19 novembre 1772. Si sono trovate due scive ed una mascatura, tutto di bronzo; e fra la terra pulendo le stanze ultime scoverte, si trovo una monete di bronzo di diam. on.1, che per la ruggine non si distingue.”

(According to Fontaine, south side of room 3,3 in baths area, perhaps outside or near window).

From PAH 1,1, p.262, 11th January 1772.

We have lifted soil from the peristyle of the said dwelling, in order to detect that we could enter into other rooms.

 

From PAH 1,1, p.262, 25th January 1772, addendum p, 158: (No number (Senza numero) on the plan of La Vega).

We continue the dig in the same building where we evacuated a room, inside of which we found a broken terracotta water-jar. We began also to discover a small courtyard adjoining to this room, which had a portico with octagonal columns on one side.

 

From PAH, 25 Gennaio 1772, addendum p.,158:

 “Prima stanza a destra sotto il portico dell’appartamento del bagno nella casa suddetta, e questa era senza numero nella pianta di La Vega.”

 

HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006. Looking west across peristyle, from east portico. According to Jashemski, this garden was enclosed by a portico supported by fourteen columns, red below and white above.
In the middle of the garden was a small rectangular pool, that had been faced with marble which had been removed in antiquity. Water from the cistern below was drawn through the two fluted travertine puteals located on the south side (left) next to the two corner columns.

We continue the excavation in the said dwelling, where we have entirely detected a room, and here we have found – A marble statue……………etc.,

According to Pagano & Prisciandaro, this marble statue of a young girl, can be seen in fig.56, of Rami inediti in their vol.II.
