I.3.3 Pompeii. 1935 photograph by Tatiana Warscher.

Looking east across atrium towards tablinum and stairs leading upto the peristyle area.

The doorway leading to the baths area, on the landing half-way up the stairs, can be seen in the left wall on the stairs.

See Warscher, T, 1935: Codex Topographicus Pompejanus, Regio I, 3: (no. 4), Rome, DAIR, whose copyright it remains. 

According to Warscher, quoting Mau from Bull. Inst.1874, p.177-179, she wrote –

“Salendo adesso la scala del peristilio, dopo sette scalini la troviamo interotta da un piano obbliquo (vedi foto no.4 and 4a) a e da questo verso sinistra per una scala di mattone si scende in certi compresi mezzo sotteranei situati poco piu alti della parte meridionale…..”

(translation: "Going up the stairs to the peristyle, after seven steps was a landing (see photo No. 4 and 4a) and from this landing one goes down to the left by a brick step into some rooms which are half-subterranean located a little bit higher than the southern part (of the house)……”

Quoting Fiorelli, in Descr. p.50, she wrote – “Attigua al tablino era la gradinata che menava al peristilio; ma a metà dell’erta s’incontra una breve discesa, che introduce ad un complesso di piccole stanze destinate forse al bagno, nella prima delle quali evvi vasca che prendeva acqua di una fistola di piombe.”

(translation: “Adjacent to the tablinum was the stairs that led up to the peristyle. But halfway alert one met a short descent, that led to a complex of small rooms used perhaps as the baths area, in the first of which was a water tank that took water from a lead pipe. "
