V.6.2 Pompeii.

 

Only the western street fronts were excavated, c.1902, 1905-8.

As this area had not been fully excavated, it was extremely difficult to see and show exactly where the entrances were.

We have followed the plan as Eschebach drew it in 1969, as best we can.

Until this area is fully excavated, this may or may not be the correct number of entrances.

 

In 2018-2019 to improve the drainage and security for visitors to the site, the soil, ash and exuberant vegetation was removed from the slope of the unexcavated land on the east side of Via del Vesuvio (Insula V.6).

Twenty new rooms have been identified of the various building units thus identified, referable to at least four houses, indicated by the passages of the entrances that opened in the walls facing the street (Fig. 4).

See Osanna M., 2019. Pompei. Il tempo ritrovato. Le nuove scoperte. Milano: Rizzoli, p. 216-7, fig. 4.

The entrance numbers may eventually change as a result.

This cleared the area to enable the street boundary wall and rooms at its immediate rear to be viewed from Via del Vesuvio.
