II.8.6 Pompeii. December 2006. Summer triclinium in garden, looking north-east.
According to Wilhelmina, near the triclinium the original excavators had found a human skeleton, two gold finger rings and five gold coins. 
There were also seven medical instruments, two probes and a bronze strigil. 
Found near the lararium was a marble statuette of Hercules, which had once stood in the lararium, so the garden was named the garden of Hercules.

According to Wilhelmina, Dott. Giordano told her that to the south of the triclinium an unusual doghouse had been found by the original excavators. 
An old amphora had been cut in half lengthways and placed on a low masonry wall, the dog then entered its kennel through the mouth of the amphora. 
Unfortunately, this no longer existed.
