I.11.6 Pompeii. March 2009.

Room 5, south wall of tablinum with window overlooking garden, and door to corridor.

According to Jashemski, the small garden had a covered passageway on the east and a water channel along this side to catch roof water. 

The garden was excavated between 1952 and 1954.

A terracotta puteal covered the cistern opening in the southwest corner of the garden. 

There was also a sundial and a small statue base in the garden when excavated. 

There were garden paintings on the south and west walls.

From the entrance, a large picture window in the tablinum permitted a fine view to the garden beyond. 

There was a niche lararium in the south wall of the passageway on the east.
