Herculaneum Ins. Or. II.2. Doorway to long corridor.

 

Maiuri wrote that this was the doorway to a long corridor/fauces leading to the living quarters of the owner of the Pistrinum in the south side street.

See Maiuri, Amedeo, (1977). Herculaneum. 7th English ed, of Guide books to the Museums Galleries and Monuments of Italy, No.53 (p.56).

 

According to Guidobaldi, this albergo (inn/hotel) with a graffito of the rare Silentiolus, which was similarly attested in a Hospitium V.2.4 at Pompeii.  Perhaps connected with the bakery at Ins. Or II.1a.

See Guidobaldi, M.P, 2009: Ercolano, guida agli scavi. Naples, Electa Napoli, (p.49).
