Herculaneum VII.8.

 

According to Cooley, thirty-two tablets were discovered on a balcony next to the House of Galba (VII.8 or 9).

See Cooley, A.E. and Cooley, M.G. 2014. Pompeii and Herculaneum; a sourcebook. U.K. Abingdon, Routledge, 2nd ed.  (p.212).

(There does not seem to be any evidence now of a balcony here, (other than the flattish tin roof) whereas the entrance at VII.3 (steps to upper floor) and VII.5 is described as “steps to upper floor above House of Galba?, and the property at VII.17/18 would also have been next to House of Galba and had an upper floor).
