IX.14.4 Pompeii. December 2007. Rear wall of large room 24 on north side of the peristyle 1. Looking east along the parapet wall with plaster cast (p) of wooden shutters.
According to NdS: 14 November 1910: The excavation of the north portico has led today to the unveiling of another interesting novelty. The great room, (numbered 24) west of the tablinum, like the tablinum, protrudes into the portico with a parapet at a height of 0.95 m. Above the parapet the wall was closed by a series of wooden shutters in rectangular frames, containing more slender panes. The shutters were held together by hinges, and perhaps fixed with bolts into the massive wooden sill that ran along the parapet. All of this came out crystal clear in the casts made in the ash, for now only for about 1m at the eastern end. It is clear that the whole space, approx 6 m wide, will repeat a similar feature and a substantial footprint can thus be obtained in plaster. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1911, (p. 51-2). According to NdS for May 1911, a plaster cast was made of the lower third of the characteristic closure which protected the south side of room 24, in the manner of a window with doorjambs and windowsill of wood. The plaster cast would be left in situ, protected in the best possible way, to make the visits to the house even more interesting for visitors. The plaster cast was indicated by “p” on the plan. See Notizie degli Scavi, (p.216, and plan on page 215).

IX.14.4 Pompeii. December 2007. Staircase to upper floor in south-east corner of secondary atrium 27 at IX.14.2. According to NdS, the first three steps were of Vesuvian stone, above the last of which would have been a wooden door. The other steps were in masonry, and showed clearly the imprint of their antique facing of wood. The walls, according to the course of the stairs, were coated with plastered brick, lying above a coating of yellow plaster with which the walls had previously been covered. See Notizie degli Scavi, 1911, (p.268).
