VI.5.4 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 1, latrine near west wall of kitchen.  According to Hobson, most of the latrine construction is of mixed stone and mortar. In the case above though, brick construction probably of the first century CE is identifiable. See Hobson, B., 2009. Latrinae et foricae: Toilets in the Roman World. London; Duckworth. (p.165) He also said this latrine constructed of brick may be a late addition to the house. See Hobson, B. 2009. Pompeii, Latrines and Down Pipes. Oxford, Hadrian Books, (p.208)

VI.5.4 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking east. According to Jashemski, the six columns around the impluvium in the atrium (and according to Fiorelli) were joined by a low masonry wall. This wall had a channel on top for plantings. It has now been restored without the planting space.
See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.125) See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.54)  According to Breton, this house was remarkable for its impluvium with a hollowed out pluteus for planting flowers. The beautiful columns around the impluvium were Doric, with their capitals more or less preserved. See Breton, Ernest. 1870. Pompeia, Guide de visite a Pompei, 3rd ed. Paris, Guerin.
