VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 8, looking east across triclinium.   According to NdS, the floor of the triclinium was “alla veneziana”. It was first decorated in the Second Style, with ashlars painted red-cinnabar, surrounded by green ribbons. From the dado with a yellow background protruded, in perspective, some pilasters with cornice and base, on which columns rested, simulated to support a portico around the walls. Fortunately for us, this beautiful but simple decoration had survived as it would have been substituted by another, as the room was found full of building materials such as limestone and others.

VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009.  Garden area 11, looking north-west from east portico, room 12. According to Jashemski, the garden was excavated in 1895-96, it was at the rear of the tablinum. It had a portico supported on the north by two brick pillars, on the east and part of the south by brick columns joined by a low masonry wall. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.

VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Looking across south portico to doorway to room 10, kitchen?
According to NdS, this room had a window overlooking the garden. The mosaic floor not only covered the floor of the room but also the walkway of the south portico. According to Sogliano in NdS, this meant that previously the floor had belonged to a much broader room with a doorway turned to the east. This wall was later demolished and the smaller room 10 was formed, together with the south portico. This new smaller room had a doorway in its north wall and newly-built rustic walls. See Notizie degli Scavi, January 1897, (p.28)

According to Wilhelmina, “found inside the niche was a white marble puteal, covered with a grey marble plate on which stood a marble fountain statuette of a standing nymph (0.54m high, Naples Archaeological Museum inv.no: 124 841) leaning with her left arm on a leather bag placed on top of a trunk of a tree. 
The statuette still showed traces of colour. There were various statuettes nearby.”
