VI.15.8 Pompeii. May 2010. North wall of the atrium. According to NdS, the beautiful conservation of the wall decoration was very notable. On the north wall, when excavated, this existed to the height of 5.70m. At the top on a white background, it was partitioned into blocks by red and black lines. On the lower area, it had a red background divided by green lines into panels outlined in yellow. In the panels were painted swans, peacocks, other birds and griffins. At the lowest level, the dado was black. See Notizie degli Scavi, January 1897, p.34.
