Regio IX

Regio IX occupies the central part of Pompeii, bounded to the north by the Via di Nola, to the west by the Via Stabiana and to the south by the Via dell'Abbondanza. Much of the area remains unexcavated.

The regio is composed of 14 insulae as shown in the graphic below. Of these, insulae 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14 contain properties that are examined here in more detail. The area is a mix of housing and commercial premises, with shops generally lining the streets while the houses occupy the interiors.
