The tufa plaque was originally situated high up on the garden wall on the north-west corner in Vicolo del Gigante. 

“Diogenes Structor” is scratched in the top centre of the plaque above the tools. 

Diogenes was probably the proud builder of the wall and scratched his name on the plaque.

The name would not have been visible from the ground.

Now held in the SAP Deposits in Pompeii: Inventory number 2254.
