Herculaneum V.29. Steps. Excavated 1933?

 

According to Wallace-Hadrill, at number 29 there were stairs up from the street. These probably led to united apartment above numbers 26-28, implying single ownership of this block of units.

See Wallace-Hadrill, A., 1994. Houses and Society in Pompeii and Herculaneum. New Jersey: Princeton U.P. (p.204).
