VIII.6.2  Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north.
According to Jashemski, this large area had a portico on the west and the south. This portico was supported by pillars of brick and three old tufa columns. The columns, which were on the south, appeared to be the remains of an earlier building. The site was thought to have been still under construction in AD79, the roof of the portico not yet built. However, the intended use of the site was not known. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.219)

N. [6]. (Not. 1882 p. 281 sg.)

Grande area circondata su due lati, O e S, da portici.

Qui però tutto era in costruzione, ne si può dire, a quale uso dovesse servire l'area stessa ed i portici. Pare che non fosse ancora fatto il tetto dei portici; almeno non se ne vede traccia alcuna all' estremità N del lato O, ove il muro è conservato in altezza bastante; né havvi ne' portici traccia di pavimento. Anche le pareti son prive di decorazione; quel che se ne vede sono avanzi di località esistite qui in antecedenza e demolite per creare quest'area. Così all'estremità N del lato E è conservata una gran parte della decorazione, fatta nell'ultimo stile, di una camera situata in un livello piu basso dell'area attuale, e similmente dirimpetto sul lato O. Verso la metà del lato E, ove è un angolo, si vedono avanzi d' una decorazione nel terzo stile, e poco distante dall'estremità S del lato quelli d'una volta che copriva una camera.

Il portico doveva essere sorretto da pilastri di tufo giallo tagliato a guisa di mattoni; però sul lato S son rimaste tre antiche colonne di tufo, provenienti evidentemente da un edifizio anteriore. Sul lato S, accanto al portico, è stata murata una porta; da essa o si doveva ascendere per mezzo dì gradini, o dava accesso a locali situati in un livello più basso dell'area attuale; era larga m. 1,75.

N. [6]. (Not. 1882 p. 281 and following)

Large area surrounded on two sides, W and S, by arcades.

Here, however, everything was under construction, it can be said, what use was to serve the area itself and the porticos. It seems that the roof of the porticos was not yet done; at least no trace of it is seen at the N end of the W side, where the wall is conserved in sufficient height; there are no traces of the floor. The walls are also devoid of decoration; what we see are the remains of places that existed here before and were demolished to create this area. Thus, at the N end of the E side, a large part of the decoration, done in the last style, of a room situated on a lower level than the present area, and similarly opposite on the W side, is preserved. Towards the middle of the E side, where there is a corner, there are remains of a decoration in the third style, and not far from the S end of the side those of a time that covered a room.
The portico was to be supported by yellow tuff pillars cut like bricks; however on the S side there are still three ancient tuff columns, evidently coming from an earlier building. On the S side, next to the portico, a door has been bricked up; from it either one had to ascend by means of steps, or it gave access to rooms situated on a lower level than the current area; it was 1.75m wide.
