Herculaneum V.19. Shop, with dwelling quarters, linked to V.20.

Excavated 1937-38.

 

According to Maiuri,

“19 and 20 are two interconnected shops with rear rooms, as they were intersected by the underground tunnels, at present they preserve neither decoration or furniture.

In one of them is the usual arrangement of the kitchen and latrine”.

See Maiuri, Amedeo, (1977). Herculaneum. 7th English ed, of Guide books to the Museums Galleries and Monuments of Italy, No.53 (p.48).
