VII.15.12 Pompeii. House of Verus, with servants Restituta and Secundus.

Shown as number 11 on Eschebach plan, which is correct according to Garcia y Garcia.

Linked to VII.15.11. Excavated 1859, 1873.

 

According to Eschebach –

11 was the posticum to the garden area, barred window above.

12 was the entrance doorway without fauces into a large two-storey vestibule with a large window to the east (left), with a cella ostiaria and latrine on the west (right).

In the rear right was a dormitory with entrance divided by pillars (against the wall of which there was a staircase to the upper floor, from the vestibule).

A long corridor led to the transverse atrium testudinatum (on the left was a triclinium, on the right a cubiculum).

In the middle of the rear wall, doorway to the two-legged corridor with light- yard/garden area on the left with (flower?) bed and gutter, on the right stairs to the upper floor, lararium, cella penaria and kitchen.

According to Garcia y Garcia, the stucco on the external front façade of this small house had been conserved.

The plaster suffered damage and fell in 1943 because of the bomb that damaged this nearby house, and the following one.
