VI.16.15 Pompeii. December 2006. Doorway to room F in centre of south wall of atrium. 
According to NdS, on the south side of the atrium opened room F almost in its entire width.
It had two black background painted jambs, on which were vertical bands of white, yellow and red. The floor was of rough cocciopesto. The south wall was entirely destroyed, while the west and east walls were well preserved. Sogliano thought the room was probably used as a triclinium.
