VI.16.15 Pompeii. December 2006. West wall of room H. According to NdS, the right side of the door was formed by a pilaster sticking out into the inside of the room. This pilaster served to support the architrave. This same pillar divided the room into two parts. The south part was larger and covered with a vaulted ceiling; the other to the north was smaller and had a flat ceiling.
