V.5.2 Pompeii. House without Compluvium. Excavated 1888, 1891, 1895.

 

Part 2      Part 1

 

This house had no compluvium. The problem of lighting the atrium, the roof of which sloped towards the back, was solved in a simple manner. 

At the rear, there was a light courtyard. By means of broad windows, this provided light and air to not only the atrium, but also to the adjoining rooms.

According to Mau, found on the wall of this summer triclinium was a scratched graffito. It read –
Fures foras, frugi intro    [CIL IV 4278]
This translated as - 
Let thieves keep out, let honest folk come in    [CIL IV 4278]
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey, F. W., Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 343-44 including description and plan).

V.5.2 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking south to steps to upper floor in south-east corner of atrium. The doorway on the west side (right) of the steps led to a cubiculum “d”. The south wall, visible in the background, was decorated in the first style. These six masonry steps would have continued with wooden stairs. These steps and stairs would have been against the east wall and led above both cubiculum “d” and cubiculum “c”. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1895, p.150
