[2] The functions and names of the individual buildings are taken from a Catalogue of the Names of the Structures Along Via dell’Abbondanza, which was compiled by the authors.  This information was obtained from seven authorities on Pompeii that are described in the Names Catalogue section of this website.  The original source material for this insula can be found in the table entitled Names - South Side.  Similar entries  have been condensed or combined and Italian, Latin and German terms have been translated into English.
