VII.7.32 Pompeii. October 2020. Looking towards north-west corner of portico. Photo courtesy of Klaus Heese.
At some stage in its early life, the wall between the Temple and the Casa di Trittolemus was rebuilt, see centre right in photo.
According to Cooley – an inscription related to changes either in the sanctuaries’ relationship with the Forum, to the east, or with private houses to the west,
gave legal permission for the blocking off of light from the spaces adjacent to the sanctuary.
For the inscription -
Marcus Holconius Rufus, duumvir with judical power for the third time and Gnaeus Egnatius Postumus, duumvir with judical power for the second time, in accordance with the decree of the town councillors paid 3,000 sesterces for the right to block off light, and saw to the building of a private wall belonging to the colonia Veneria Cornelia as far as the roof.

The doorway to the rear room, known as the room of the priest, or chamber of Bacchus, would have been in the north wall on the left.
Cooke, Cockburn, and Donaldson wrote -
“At the end of the court, opposite the entrance, was a small chamber, which possesses an invaluable picture of Bacchus and Silenus, the former holding the thyrsus in one hand and a vase in the other; Silenus appears with his lyre instructing the god. A small niche is in the wall, apparently for the reception of a statue or lares.”
See Cooke, Cockburn, Donaldson: Pompeii, Pt 1, 1827, (p.55)
According to Garcia y Garcia –
“Because of the bombardment in 1943 there was much damage to the temple: it was hit by two bombs during the night of 13th September, when the west portico with the demolition of part of the stylobate, four columns and the demolition of an 8m part of the perimeter wall to the west were hit. Hit again by a successive incursion, there followed the demolition of the north-east corner of the portico with fallen and partial loss of the IV Style painted plaster; the felling of part of the north perimeter wall, of four columns from the north portico and of the stylobate that surrounded the temple. The rear room to the north of the portico was completely destroyed. The painting of Bacchus and Silenus is now in the Naples Archaeological Museum.”
This small room, perhaps used by the priest, became to be known as the chamber of Bacchus.

VII.7.32 Pompeii.  1834 painting of the wall of the small room with the painting of Bacchus and Silenus. Bacchus was holding the thyrsus in one hand and an upended cup in the other; Silenus was playing his lyre for the god. Mazois could not understand why the artist had drawn a Billy goat rather than the panther seen in the original. See Mazois, F., 1838. Les Ruines de Pompei: Quatrieme Partie. Paris: Didot Freres, p. 39, note (1), pl. XLII.
