VII.1.36 Pompeii. October 2009. Looking south across large tub or basin in atrium. Photo courtesy of Jared Benton. According to Scafarti, from the entrance corridor one entered the atrium with several rooms on the sides, and where in the middle was a basin of masonry in which one could see a lead pipe and various tubes of terracotta to regulate the flow of water. Then one passed into the locality of the mills and oven, which was found shut with a bar of iron across it, and contained 81 loaves, well preserved and now to be seen in Naples Museum and Museum at Pompeii. See Scafarti, (1900): Guide to Pompei illustrated, (p.62)
According to Breton, in the centre of the atrium was found a square masonry impluvium of an exceptional shape because its sides were not less than 0.80m height above the ground: the water was brought by a visible lead pipe. On the left was a large terracotta puteal mended with lead straps. See Breton, Ernest. 1870. Pompeia, Guide de visite a Pompei, 3rd ed. Paris, Guerin.

VII.1.36 Pompeii. One of 81 loaves found in bakery ready for sale. Now in Boscoreale Antiquarium. According to Della Corte, the bakery was one of the most complete found up until then in the excavated city, from the tub for the working of the grain, the stall for the shelter of the beasts that worked the four machines, the workshop for the proving of the bread, and the shop, which opened onto the via at number 37, for the sale of the same bread. Precisely in this oven of the bakery, found closed with a door of iron, were 81 carbonised loaves of bread, put there to cook minutes before the catastrophe.
