V, 14 in centre, Herculaneum, May 2010. Entrance doorway and upper floor.
The room at the back on the upper floor above the entrance doorway, overlooking the peristyle garden at the rear, was the room where 150 waxed tablets of Calatoria Themis, wife of C. Petronius Stephanus, were found in a carbonized wooden box. 
The contents of the tablets were still readable and recorded the story of a roman law-suit, see V.15.
