According to Boyce, this had a ledge formed by a tile projecting on the level of its floor: the inside walls were red, the stucco ornaments red, white and blue.

It was possibly from the niche in the garden dedicated to the household gods.

Now in Naples Archaeological Museum.  Inventory number: 109745.

According to Boyce, in the tablinum was found a bronze statuette of the Genius wearing the toga, a fold of which was drawn over his head, and holding in his left a cornucopia, in the right a patera. Giornale di Scavi, N.S, iii, 1874, 57

I.2.10 Pompeii. December 2006. Peristyle garden area.
According to Garcia y Garcia, because of the damage from the bombing in September 1943, there is not much to see of the peristyle anymore.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.37)

According to Jashemski, today the garden is almost totally destroyed.
She wrote, according to Mau, most of the garden was occupied by a large pool, surrounded by a low wall. This left only a narrow space between the pool and the walls.  In the north-west corner were the two couches of the masonry biclinium. This sloped, as was customary towards the wall so rainwater falling on them was carried away by a terracotta drain. This drain emptied into the pool. At the east end of the north couch was a masonry table. Fiorelli reported a planting bed attached to the rear (east) wall. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.22)

According to Fiorelli and Sogliano, the wall in the garden was decorated with paintings.
Fiorelli described, “one comes to the garden, which has a wall opposite decorated with pictures, especially quadrupeds, fish, flowers, trees, with two large bowls, and one finds a flower bed leaning against the same wall for the cultivation of flowers.”  See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.35)
Sogliano described a four-sided peristyle, “in the middle we see water with fishes, and above it various beasts, between which we discern a deer and a panther.  To the right and to the left are fountains in the form of vases, surrounded by a grove with fruit and flowers. See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: (p.144, no.696)
