V.1 Pompeii. Found 6th April 1748.
Wall painting showing the first picture found in the excavations of the Civita “garland with mask of bearded satyr, and bird resting on the festoon”.
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 8591.
It was possibly found in the area of V.1.29/30/31/32 near the crossroads of the Via Stabiana and Via di Nola.
However, PPM (III, 540), thinks that the excavations started in V.1.18, House of the Epigrams, in April 1748.
