VI.10.11 Pompeii. Pre-1943. Drawing and photo by Tatiana Warscher.
According to Warscher -
“In the corridor between the two doorways on the right-hand side, there was a small compartment/room accessible from the atrium and the corridor. Its scope was not at all clear, being too narrow to be the porter’s room. This small room/compartment must have been used as a passageway when the grand door was closed.
The grand door (1) was set behind the pilasters (2). A small compartment/room/passageway (3 – 4) set behind the right pilaster (2), permitted entry into the house by a small door (5) without having to open the principal main door.
This narrow passage was closed on the street side by a small door.”
