V.6.4 Pompeii. House.

According to the plan in Massimo Osanna’s book this is referred to as “Casa 5”.

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

 

Only the western street front has been excavated, c.1902, 1905-8.

As this area has not been fully excavated yet, it is 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 order to improve the drainage and security for visitors to the site, the soil, ash and exuberant vegetation was removed from the slope of the land on the east side of Via del Vesuvio (Insula V.6).
This cleared the area to enable the street boundary wall and rooms at its immediate rear to be viewed from Via del Vesuvio.

(c.2018-2019). In order 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).

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