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.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
