VII.16.4 Pompeii. December 2004. Looking north across shop towards doorway to atrium of VII.16.3, and doorway to rear room.
On the left, in the west wall was another doorway to the entrance corridor of VII.16.3.
According to Boyce, in the east wall was a semicircular niche – la nicchia dei Penati, according to Fiorelli.

According to Garcia y Garcia, this workshop was destroyed by the bombing of 13th September 1943, and then partially restored in 1950.
There is now no trace of a window at the rear looking into the atrium, as it has been replaced by a doorway.
The niche that Boyce described as being in the east wall, although there was doubt as to its exact position, has not been replaced at all.
Avellino located it in the west wall, whereas Boyce said in the east wall.
