VII.6.35 Pompeii. Lupanare? Excavated 1822, 1910.

Linked to VII.6.36.

 

According to Fiorelli,

Of the two shops, the first had a stair/ladder to the mezzanine level, the second also had a similar staircase and a doorway exiting onto the Vico, also an aedicula lararium leaning against the wall, with a single painted serpent and the altar in stucco relief, near to which was the graffito MARS.   [CIL IV 1644]

(Delle due botteghe, la prima ha la scaletta dell’ammezzato, la seconda oltre una simile gradinata ed una porta uscente nel vico, tiene il larario a guisa di edicola addossato alla parete, con un solo serpente e l’ara in rilievo di stucco, presso cui e graffito MARS.   [CIL IV 1644])

See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.160, and also VII.6.34.

 

According to NdS,

The entrances of doorways numbered 31-36 were already brought to light before our excavation, as was described by Fiorelli (signed G. Spano, 15th October 1910, Rome).

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p.486: last paragraph.
