VI.14.21 on the left, and VI.14.22 on the right. Pompeii. December 2005. According to Della Corte, these graffiti were found on the front of these entrances:
Caecilium  Capellam
d(uum)  v(irum)  i(ure)  d(icundo)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)
Cornelia  rog(at)      [CIL IV 3479]
He thought Cornelia may have been the wife of Vesonius Primus.
[C]n(aeum)  Helvium  Sabinum
aed(ilem)  Primus  cum  suis  rog(at)      [CIL IV 3482]
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) this graffito ends with the word “fac(iat)“ and not “rog(at)”
Also found here was a graffito that read:
Proculum
aed(ilem)  Felicio 
lupinipolus  rog (at)     [CIL IV 3483]
This was similar to the one from the opposite side of the road (see V.1.25 [CIL IV 3423]) and led him to think it named the owner of the shop there. See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.100)
