I.2.10 Pompeii. September 2010. West wall of triclinium. This wall appeared to have conserved the largest amount of the painted decoration. The middle zone of the wall had a central panel painted on a red background and also contained the remains of a painting that was probably already destroyed at the time of the excavation. The central panel was separated from the side yellow panels by means of a painted narrow green compartment. 
The remains of the stucco cornice can be seen below the window. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker.

I.2.10 Pompeii. Found in triclinium. 
Black crystalline rock adorned with opus sectile tablet of Venus untying, or doing up, her sandal. 
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum.  Inventory number: 109678.
According to Fiorelli, the triclinium was adorned with paintings that were now non-existent, other than a tablet of schist inserted into the wall.
On the tablet was mounted a marble figure of Venus untying her shoes.
See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.35)
According to Warscher, quoting Olga Elia (Bollettino d’arte, 1929, p.276) – 
“Di due pannelli decorativi pompeiani con figure in “opus sectile” ad intarsio”
“Qui ci troviamo dinanzi ad un lavoro di ordine inferiore, di valore estetico negativo, per il rendimente del tipo e la trascuratezza della tecnica……….
Aggiungo qui un quadretto di opus sectile rinvenuto nella casa 10, of Insula 2, Regione I: vi è rappresentata su fondo nero di pietra di Genova una Venere in marmo bianco, che con capelli e braccialetti di marmo giallo, appoggiandosi con la sinistra ad un pilastrino, solleva la gamba sinistra per porsi al piede un armillo”.
