One trial trench, measuring 1.43 by 2.86 m, was excavated in the stable, room q of the North house, V 1, 23, to check a hypothesis suggested already by August Mau in 1876. According to Mau, the visible remains of a transverse wall, running north-south, in the north wall of the large triclinium o in the South house, were remains of an older wall that continued to the north, towards the partition wall between V 1,23 and Casa degli Epigrammi greci V 1,18. The trench did indeed reveal partial remains of an older wall running north-south at the floor level and, partly built into the wall, remains of a round cistern, as well as a lot of building débris. Beside the cistern, the lower part of a large basin was preserved in situ. The visible wall-remains, the large amounts of small fragments of broken pottery and other discarded material that were found, especially west of the cistern, may support Mau’s suggestion that the garden-area of the North house, V 1,23l, previously extended further towards the east.
