Herculaneum VI.28. Doorway to room, linked to atrium of VI.29.

 

Wallace-Hadrill wrote that this was the entrance of stairs leading from street to an upper apartment.

According to Pesando and Guidobaldi, this room to the left of the entrance corridor, with a window that still preserved its grating, was possibly the room for the “porter” (cella ostiaria), and in it were the wooden stairs to the upper floor; when the upper rooms onto the front roadway were developed and were rented out, a separate entrance at no. 28 was created.
