Bombardiert
[Bombarded]
This insula was badly damaged during the aerial bombing of 1943 (Spin. 1 1953. P. XX fig. 2). Two bombs fell on the western vicolo separating it from III, 5; one of them landed in the street at the junction of this vicolo and the Via dell'Abbondanza; the other fell farther to the north. From the concussion of the first of these the caupona of Pherusa was seriously impaired and today retains very little of the character it displayed fifty years ago.

At a short distance to the east of No. 6 the sidewalk is interrupted; here there is a large gap… It would seem, however, that this present runious condition was caused by the bombing of 1943.
