See Fröhlich, T., 1991. Lararien und Fassadenbilder in den Vesuvstädten. Mainz: von Zabern, (p.319, 35, Taf 56,2)
According to Spano, "one of the usual representations of two enormous agatodemon snakes came to light, which on both sides approach a sumptuous altar, all included in a rectangular space with a white background, measuring 2.10m. X 1.00m. 
The picture, however, is here, more than elsewhere, notable for the inscription painted in the corner upper left, and which I reproduce here: 
CACATOR SIC VALEAS 
VT TV HOCLOCVM TRASIA
The image of snakes, tutelary geniuses of a place, served in general to defend that place against any kind of ugliness. 
What ugliness was feared in the place where we are, however, is explicitly stated by our inscription".
See Spano, in Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p. 262.

According to Della Corte, the unknown proprietor of the unexcavated house or workshop, had the warning added to the street shrine.
The wording, between good wishes and irony, was:
Cacator, sic valeas, ut tu hoc (sic) locum trasia(s)  (= transeas).    [CIL IV 6641]
See Della Corte, M., 1965. Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.97)

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), it read:
Cacator, si<c=g> valeas
Ut tu hoc locum tra(n)sea(s)    [CIL IV 6641]
