VI.2.4 Pompeii. 1852 drawing entitled Kitchen in the House of Actaeon.
See Gell, W. and Gandy, J., 1852. Pompeiana: Third Edition. London: Bohn, p. 107.
According to Gell,
“26 (on Gell’s plan). Kitchen, and privy for the women's apartments.
Of this a view is given as the foregoing head-piece on page 107. 
On the right of the way upstairs is the hearth for cooking, separated therefrom by wooden ballusters, which do not remain. 
On the other side is an arched recess, about three feet deep; a conveniency, according to modern, at least English ideas, most inconveniently situated.
The wood work of the seat is gone: the marks for the hinges, and fastening to the door, may be observed.
It would appear, that in ancient, as in modern ltaly and Greece, a proximity between the ultimate receptacle of the aliments and their place of preparation was considered desirable.”
See Gell, W. and Gandy, J., 1852. Pompeiana: Third Edition. London: Bohn, p. 123.

According to Anne Laidlaw (2021) –
“It is interesting that he puts the back exit in place of the latrine just beyond the south wall of the back garden. That’s where the exit was restored after the bombing in 1943, after I had excavated the latrine in front of the new exit. And he also shows a stair at the south end of the back portico, which we could never find any evidence for, and which my architect said couldn’t have reached the 2nd storey – not enough space for the space to go that high. But I suppose it might have started as steps and then shifted to a ladder. Chenavard drew this plan 12 years after the Bourbons completed emptying the whole house, and the 1840’s model is pretty complete, so some sort of stair may well have been there (but not shown in the model of 1840).”
