V 1,7 Casa del Torello, Room 06
Thomas Staub Page updated: 2017-04-01
DESCRIPTION
In the southeast corner room 6 opened up on the south wall of the atrium 4. The room was entered through a small anteroom. Except for the north wall, all walls are, at least in part, constructed in opus incertum using the materials belonging to the original building phase of the house. It was enterd through a small "anteroom" at its south west corner. Originally this room together with the adjacent room 7 formed a larger room, which was later separated into two rooms by means of the newly built northern partition wall. This is proved by the floor, which runs through underneath this partition wall and the First Style decorations still preserved on the west wall, covered by this partition wall. As indicated by a later filled up niche along the lower parts of the east wall, visible also in the southernmost part of the east wall in room b, this original room could have served as a triclinium. On the east wall, a window opens up towards the back street, vicolo di Caecilius Secundus. In the northeast corner part of a second window is covered by the later built northern partition wall. The northern part of this window is the one lighting room 7. The walls are covered by a quite rough plaster with three horizontal rows of rectangular holes on the north and east wall. Since these holes served for holding cupboards, this room must have served for storage, eventually combined with the function as cella ostiaria. The floor from room 7 continues underneath the partition wall into the main room, but not into the "anteroom", which shows slightly different cement (containing fine lava-split, which does not occur in the floor of rooms 6 and 7). The entrance from the atrium 4 through the anteroom might in the original stage have served as a service entrance towards the supposed triclinium, where as the main entrance was the doorway later leading towards the cubiculum 7.

The room itself 3.35 m x 2.95 m large, the "anteroom" 0.7 m x 0.85 m


Maximera MEASUREMENTS
Dimensions: 3.30 m x 2.95 m = 9.73 m2 + 0.67 x 0.85 m (anteroom) = 0.47 m2 = 10.20 m²

Maximera EXCAVATIONS
