V.3.4 Pompeii. March 2009. West wall of tablinum. According to Sogliano, the walls of the tablinum were painted with six large red panels. Each had a painted medallion in its centre, showing a flying griffin, except for the first one on the left (west) wall. The first one on the left either had one that had faded away or had never existed. The panel on the left was enclosed between two architectural motifs, on which each was adorned with a dolphin and garlands. The frieze was also decorated with architectural motifs of panels, arabesques, garlands, roundels, flying swans, etc. Below the frieze, and between it and the large red panel, was a broad yellow band. The lower base of the wall was painted black, divided into panels, and decorated with painted plants. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1905, (p.206).
