See Presuhn E., 1882. Pompeji: Die Neuesten Ausgrabungen  von 1874 bis 1881. Leipzig: Weigel. Abtheilung II, p. 4, Taf. VI.

According to Presuhn;

“At the Peristyle. accessible through a door of the fauces “h”. There is a small living room or bedroom, which by its very rich, well done and interesting decoration has a high value. Unfortunately it has fallen quickly into ruin; but we did leave immediately after the excavation with all the details of all the walls, in the best copy, and intend to produce an attractive publication with these plates.

The centre wall is bounded above by a wide cornice painted stucco.

We have copied a wall panel with an intermediate field at  “l north wall” (Tafel VI). where the piece was unfortunately shortly afterwards lost to moisture and frost. The opposite field (with i= “l south wall”) shows a similar Bacchante group very well preserved. and even more green and yellow monochrome can also be found on the walls; similar to the sea centaur on our page. A panel from a central field is in the museum at Naples.”

 

“Am Peristyle auch durch eine Tür von den fauces (g=“h“) zugänglich, befindet sich ein kleines Wohn oder Schlafzimmer, welches durch seine überaus reiche, gut ausgeführte und interessante Decoration einen hohen Werth hat. Unglücklicherweise ist es rasch dem Ruin verfallen; wir haben aber sofort nach der Ausgrabung sämmtliche Wände mit allen Details aufs beste copiren lassen, und gedenken mit diesen Tafeln eine hübsche Publication zu veranstalten.

Die Mittelwand ist oben durch einen breiten bemalten Stuck karniess begrenzt.

Wir haben ein Wandfeld mit einem Zwischenfelde bei (h) copirt (Tafel VI). wo der Stück leider kurz nachher durch Nässe und Frost sich abgelost hat. Das gegenüberliegende Feld (bei "i") zeigt eine ähnliche Bacchanten gruppe sehr gut erhalten. und ebenso fìnden sich an den Wänden noch mehrere grüne und gelbe Monochrome; ähnlich wie der Seekentaur auf unserem Blatt. Ein Tafelbild aus einem Mittelfelde ist ins Museum zu Neapel versetzt.“
