According to Jashemski, 
“water from 12 fountain statuettes (2 bronze and 10 marble) on bases placed between the columns of the portico, jetted into 8 marble basins which stood in the water channel at the edge of the garden. 9 of the fountain statuettes were preserved and used to be on display in the garden.  In 1978, the 4 fountain statuettes from the north end of the garden were stolen, eventually being recovered, but in pieces. The remaining statuettes were removed for safe keeping".

VI.15.1 Pompeii. 1944. Peristyle garden, looking north. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer. According to Garcia y Garcia, not even the most famous house in Pompeii was saved from the 1943 bombardment. The troops of tourists that have visited there each day, are mostly ignorant of the reality of the events. On the night of 16th September 1943, a bomb fell and destroyed the north-east corner of the peristyle causing the subsidence of the floor of the peristyle. This also caused the destruction of a part of the north perimeter wall, the ruin of three columns in the peristyle, and the partial loss of the IV style painted wall from the north portico, and the west wall of the peristyle. Damage was also suffered in the south-west part of the triclinium and the north wall of the oecus of Pasifae, to the north-east of the peristyle. The partial ruin of the south corner of the women’s gynaeceum to the north of the peristyle. In the south-east corner of this area was the triclinium decorated with the painting of Hercules and Auge on the south wall.  This was damaged in its lower parts, without the possibility of restoration.  Partially damaged was the roof of the walkways around the peristyle, and that of the oecus of Pasifae, and in the cubiculum to the north of the atrium. The other paintings in the house were saved by a miracle. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.93-96, including photos)
