House and Thermopolium of Vetutius Placidus—Drinks and hot food were served in this place, as the name indicates, stored in large jars placed in the richly decorated masonry counter of the tavern. The news stand on the back wall is of great interest; extremely well-maintained, it consists of a lararium dedicated to the protectors of the household (Lari), the Genius (guardian angel) protector of the owner, as well as the god of trade (Mercury) and the god of wine (Dionysus). The house is at the rear, interconnected with the shop, decorated with precious frescoes and a triclinium for outdoor dining. A hoard of nearly 7 pounds of coins was found in one of the large clay jars placed in the counter, probably the last collections of the host, thereby attesting to the profitable activity of the tavern.
