VI.13.10 Pompeii. December 2004.
Looking west from entrance corridor across atrium and impluvium.
According to Garcia y Garcia, at the head of the impluvium was a masonry table with an arch below.
This suffered damage to its top, when the bomb fell on the area of the house at VI.13.9, in 1943.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.87 and figs 186 and 187)
Fig 187 shows the table, photographed by Tatiana Warscher after the war.
It appears to have suffered a further loss, and is now no longer there !
