IX.2.26 Pompeii. May 2005. Entrance doorway, looking south.
According to Trendelenberg, “The second entrance of the north vicolo gave entrance to a house (G. d. s. XIII p. 33 following), which was remarkable for the good conservation of the painted plaster of which the walls of both the external and the internal façade were coated with. In the beautiful white, yellow and black decoration, we could have seen cupids, birds, animals, griffins and other fantastic figures, but in this house we would seek in vain for mythological scenes. Among the figures which enlivened the walls, a dog merited special attention. It was painted in small proportions in the first panel of the entrance corridor on the left of where one entered the doorway. It was attached by means of a chain to a tree trunk, recalling the “cave canem” mosaic at the entrance of the House of the Tragic Poet. The entrance corridor was flanked on the right by the kitchen, on the left by the triclinium that opened entirely onto the atrium. The floor of it was of mattone pesto with a meandering stripe that ran around all four sides. In the centre was a square with a circle of white stones to mark the position of the table.
Near to the entrance corridor wall in the atrium, a red podium could be seen. On its principal face the altar and two serpents were painted, above this was the lararium in the form of an aedicula with roof, with two small supporting columns. On the opposite side and right alongside of the tablinum, there was a brick base, the surface of which was all covered with rust, leaving no doubt that this was the base for the iron box, in which the money was kept. In the floor of the second room on the left was a small coloured mosaic depicting two white doves and a closed box of yellow and red below them. In the garden was a narrow terrace, supported by four stuccoed columns, on which numerous inscribed graffiti were seen, published by Baron in G.d.s, XI, p.281, then in CIL IV, p.XVII, no.3297 and following. Today, the strokes of the letters are too deleted, and are best compared with the publication. Where, however, I managed to read a few words I found exactly as copied by Baron, except the beginning of the verse of the Aeneid, which is written just like this : CERTE HINC ROMANOS, etc."
