V.2.10 Pompeii. December 2007. Doorway to room 5. According to NdS, this doorway led to a spacious room on a slightly higher level, and which could have been a triclinium. It was decorated with two paintings, both relative to the myth of Daedalus and Pasiphae. The one on the east wall, see below, was cut. (See Notizie degli Scavi, 1891, p.269). Only a trace remained of the one on the west wall. Straight ahead, Sogliano could see the figure of Pasiphae sitting on a throne and turning to the left. She was wearing a purple robe fringed with blue. To the left of her was the outline of a cow, near to which would have been the figure of Daedalus, who would have been almost in the middle. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1896, (p. 437)
