V.1.18 Pompeii. March 2009. Peristyle “i”, looking east from tablinum “g”.
According to Jashemski, the peristyle had a portico on the west, north and part of the east sides.
It was supported by nine columns and two-engaged stucco-covered brick columns.
The columns were red below, and white above, and were connected by a low wall.
The entrance to the garden was on the west side.
The garden painting on the east side was visible from the entrance.

V.1.18 Pompeii. Tablinum “g”. Red screed floor inlaid with coloured marble chips in the middle.
According to Presuhn;
“To the right of tablinum is a bedroom “f” with crude walls. From the Decoration of the tablinum unfortunately little remains; black intermediate fields separated red and yellow wall panels, like the atrium, decorated in second style. (Pr. Wandd. p. 13). A panel by “g”, although badly damaged, is still recognizable; Venus and Adonis are shown here: With a pretty crying Amor, who survived the destruction of the image until now.
On the one side field a cupid leads a greyhound on a leash. on the other side, a cupid has killed in a boar; in the yellow top wall he carries a beautiful garland. 
The red screed floor of the tablinum has an ornament inlaid with coloured marble chips in the middle.”

„Rechts vom Tablinum ist ein Schlafzimmer (e) mit rohen Wänden. Von der Decoration des TabIinum ist leider wenig erhalten; schwarze Zwischenfelder trennten rothe und gelbe Wandfelder. gleich dem Atrium im Stil der zweiten Epoche componirt (Pr. Wandd. p. 13). Ein Tafelbild (bei f). obgleich sehr zerstört. ist noch erkennbar; Venus und Adonis sind hier dargestellt (vgl. HeIbig, Wandgemälde 329-345): mit einem hübschen weinenden Amor, der die Zerstörung des Bildes bis jetzt überdauert hat.
Auf dem einen Seitenfelde führt ein Amoretto einen Windhund an der Leine. auf dem anderen steht er bei einem erlegten Eber; in der gelben Oberwand tragt er eine prächtige Guirlande (Pr. Wandd. Tafel XIX). Der rothe Estrich-Fussboden des Tablinums hat in der Mitte eine Verzierung mit eingelegten bunten Marmorstückchen (Tafel IlI unten) .“
