In the upper right of this photo, the three steps in the pavement outside VIII.3.2 can be seen.

According to Gell –

“At a spot in this street, on the side opposite to the Chalcidicum, may be observed three steps in the footpath, at the bottom of which, close to the wall of a house, a marble cone, ending in a sharp point, rises from the pavement to the height of about twelve inches. The house or pier adjoining is built with large and well-united blocks of stone, on one of which are the evident vestiges of a now almost illegible Oscan inscription in two lines, plastered and painted over with a sacrifice and an altar of Victory. As it seems not improbable that the ancient languages of Italy will hereafter be better understood than at present, it may be useful to give the letters as they appear, or did appear, having been carefully copied at many different periods.”

 

VIII.3.2 Pompeii. Drawing by Gell of three steps outside VIII.3.2, on south side of Via dell’Abbondanza.
“This pier exhibits the marks of having been worn by frequent attrition at the height of about three feet from the pavement, but how used, or for what purpose the cone was intended, is yet an enigma.”
See Gell, W, 1832. Pompeiana: Vol 1. London: Jennings and Chaplin. (p.3 and 4).
