VI.14.28 Pompeii. Model in Naples Archaeological Museum, showing area.  According to Della Corte, this consisted of a ground and an upper floor. The ground floor consisted of a small room to the south of the main room. This communicated with a neighbouring room of passage in its north-west corner with the atrium of the Casa del Laocoonte, and by a wooden staircase to the upper floor. There were another two rooms on the upper floor. Mau observed there may have been another room on the upper floor, at one time in direct communication with the neighbouring room, but then had been walled up. See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.90)
According to Garcia y Garcia, this was a real gambling den of the Roman period. It was nearly completely destroyed by the nocturnal bombing of the 16th September 1943, with the ruin of the upper floor and nearly total loss of the decoration in IVth Style, that had been previously well preserved.  See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.90-1, incl. figs 188-192)
