The so-called vestibule Ephebe's House in Pompeii
Vestibule of House of the Ephebe in Pompeii

Vestibule of House of the Ephebe in Pompeii (Casa dell’Efebo). On photo we can see a plaster cast of a fragment of the entrance door to the house, supported by a wooden pole blocking the wings. Of course, the pole did not survive, but its plaster cast was made.

When you take a good look, in the aged homes in the floor at the entrance is a recess in the floor. Probably, just to block the entrance from the inside.
