Herculaneum VI.13. Casa del Salone nero or House of the black salon or room, linked to rear entrance at VI.11.

Excavated between 1939 and 1965.

 

Plan

 

According to Wallace-Hadrill, the main entrance led to the atrium/tablinum/peristyle with 4-sided colonnade; 10 reception rooms, 3 service rooms at back, with back door at no.11. Decoration in atrium area perished or poor. Elegant Style IV decorations in tablinum, passage, peristyle, and 4 surrounding rooms.

Wooden shrine in large salone nero, shrine in small lightwell at end of visual axis of house.

See Wallace-Hadrill, A., 1994. Houses and Society in Pompeii and Herculaneum. New Jersey: Princeton U.P. (p.206).

 

Camardo and Notomista show a photo of the wooden shrine and wrote of the extraordinary state of conservation of the carbonised wooden lararium in the form of a temple in antis, with columns surmounted with marble capitals, which had been found in the Casa and displayed there for a time.

See Camardo, D, and Notomista, M, eds. (2017). Ercolano: 1927-1961. L’impresa archeologico di Amedeo Maiuri e l’esperimento della citta museo. Rome, L’Erma di Bretschneider, (p.254-55, Scheda 38, fig. 2 of shrine).

 

According to Guidobaldi, this house took its name from the large black painted oecus which was situated on the west side of the peristyle.

The house occupied the entire north-east corner of the insula.

The main entrance was at number 13, whereas the side entrance at number 11 led into a vestibule in the servants’ quarters; preserved here was the outline of the stairs leading up to an upper apartment, which was above these rustic rooms and the entire loggia of the peristyle.

Recovered in one of the rooms of the upper floor were fragments of wax tablets, originally placed on a shelf of painted wood, of complex recomposition and letters, but clearly relating to the freedman, L. Venidius Ennychus, who was active on the Herculaneum scene since 40 AD. He was probably recognised as the last proprietor of this house.

See Guidobaldi, M.P, 2009: Ercolano, guida agli scavi. Naples, Electa Napoli, (p.103-107).

See Cooley, A.E. and Cooley, M.G. 2014. Pompeii and Herculaneum; a sourcebook. U.K. Abingdon, Routledge, 2nd ed.  (p.213-215 G1-4), quoting from 39 wax tablets found on a wooden shelf.

 

Wallace-Hadrill wrote that found on the upper floor of this house was a basket full of at least 39 of the documents of Lucius Venidius Ennychus.

This bundle was of crucial importance to Ennychus because it guaranteed his status.

The earliest seems to date from AD 40-1 regarding a loan of money to L. Mammius Rufus.

Another recorded that on 24th July AD 60, he declared the birth of his daughter Venidia to his wife Livia Acte.

The zoccolo (dado) was painted with black panels adorned with carpet borders and would have been separated by red-bordered compartments containing painted shrubs.

The middle zone of the walls had a central aedicula flanked by various other structures that are partially hidden by large black drapes with red borders.

Projecting from each end of the wall was a two-storied pavilion with a coffered ceiling.

The upper area of the walls had a white background.

According to Guidobaldi and Esposito, the neutral colour scheme of the rooms on the south side of the peristyle harmonised with the mosaic floors, which were plain white with a double band of black, except in the peristyle, where the scheme was reversed, and a regular stippling of white tesserae was introduced.

Maiuri wrote that on the western side is a large black hall, with the walls divided into three rectangular paintings like mirrors, flanked by pillars and chandeliers in lively colours.

The ceiling too, with a wide skylight (? vaulted area) in the centre, recomposed from various fragments, is on a black ground.

Against the wall is placed a wooden shrine in the usual form of a wooden temple, with wooden columns and little marble capitals, which preserved the little statues of a Lararium.

According to Deiss, found in the black saloon – “was another miraculous wooden survival:  a shrine in the form of a miniature temple. 
The fluted columns were of wood, the capitals of marble. 
Preserved within are the statuettes typical of a lararium maintained by people who remained devout in the old Roman faith”.

Holes for the support beams of the flooring can be seen on the upper left.

According to Maiuri, on the southern side there are two beautiful cubicula; the little vaults preserve all the ornamental motives plainly painted.
