VII.9.30 Pompeii. December 2007. Entrance doorway. According to Boyce, perhaps at this taberna, might have been found on one pilaster a painting of Mercury. Found on the opposite pilaster was Bacchus leaning upon a square pilaster and pressing the juice from a bunch of grapes into a kantharos. The kantharos stood on the top of the square pilaster. His references were Helbig 25, PAH ii, 55 (July 7 1822), Museo Borbonico iii, pl.50, Gell, Pompeiana (1832), i, 191, ii,172. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.
