Regio V occupies the north-eastern sector of Pompeii, bounded to the south by the Via di Nola
and to the west by the Via Stabiana.

Regio V remains to a large extent unexcavated, as denoted by the
dull green shading on the plan below. Of the 7 insulae in the area, insulae 1, 2, 4 and 5 contain properties of particular interest and are examined here in more detail. The area so far unearthed is a general mix of commercial and domestic properties.
