*POMPEII, ITALY ~ House of Menander: Immediately east of the fauces is a small room (d) entered by way of a narrow doorway in its south wall. The room, plainly decorated with a layer of coarse plaster, is of indeterminate use, perhaps a small cubiculum but more likely a storeroom. The room was lit by a narrow window high on its north wall.
