VI.17.3 Pompeii. Entrance to caupona.

Linked to VI.17.4. First excavated 1757?

 

According to Fiorelli –

“VI.17.3 and 4. Il termopolio che segue ha due aditi, tra i quali era un pilastro portante nella sommita un fallo a rilievo, in un piccola edicola sporgente dal muro.

Vi erano sotto altri programmi, ne’quali proponevansi alla edilita lo stesso Giulio Polibio, Sabino, e M. Cerrinio Vatia.

La bottega fornita del solito podio co’gradini e il fornello, aveva nello interno un androne, cui stavano ai lati l’apotheca, il triclinio, due cellette, e poi un altro triclinio ed un cubicolo: teneva in fondo tre grandi celle, e da una di esse il passagio nell’hospitium.”

See Fiorelli, G. (1875). Descrizione di Pompei, (p.431-2)

See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.158).

(translation –

“VI. 17.3 and 4. The thermopolium that follows has two entrances, between which was a pillar carrying a phallus in relief at the top, in a small protruding aedicula.

Underneath there were other inscriptions, in which were proposed the same Julius Polybius, Sabino, and M. Cerrinio Vatia, for aediles.

The bar-room was furnished with the usual podium with steps/shelves and a hearth, in the interior was a corridor, storeroom, the triclinium, two rooms and then another triclinium and a cubiculum were on either side: having at the rear three large rooms, and in one of them was the passage into the hospitium (at VI.17.1).”
