VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009.  Small doorway in west wall of room K, leading into room L, tablinum. According to NdS, in ancient times the south side of the tablinum had also opened in its entire width onto the peristyle M, but this wide entrance was later walled in.

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. 

Small doorway in west wall of room K, leading into room L, tablinum.

According to NdS, in ancient times the south side of the tablinum had also opened in its entire width onto the peristyle M, but this wide entrance was later walled in.

 

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room L, west wall of tablinum. According to NdS, the tablinum opened in almost its entire width from the atrium on its north side. It had wooden door jambs and maybe even a wooden threshold. The east and west walls preserved their painted decoration as well as a small wall to the left of the wide northern doorway. Each wall showed three large panels, the central yellow, the sides red. These were best preserved on the west wall, where on the yellow central panel was a painting of Atalanta and Meleager. The painting was very poorly preserved. On the left was Atalanta sitting on a chair, on the right was Meleager. Near to him on the left was a dog resting on its back legs, with its head pointing towards its master. Between the dog and Atalanta, the boar, profiled to the right, was on the floor. In the middle of the two red panels of the west wall were small landscapes, without frames, and very faded. The portion of the north wall, to the left of the large doorway to the atrium, offered a red panel with the painting of a mask in the centre. 
On the white frieze, were the usual architecture with suspended objects and arabesques.
The badly preserved dado on a black background was divided into panels by means of reddish bands.  See Notizie degli Scavi, 1908, (p.189)

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room L, east wall of tablinum, looking north-east. Nearly all faded was a small landscape that probably would have been seen in the centre of the red panel at the left end of the east wall. The yellow panel in the centre was missing almost entirely, as also the red panel on the right end of this wall. This was mainly missing because of the area used by the doorway into room K.

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room B, looking north across impluvium in atrium. According to NdS, the square shaped impluvium had its base covered with signinum with numerous pieces of marble randomly buried into it. The sides were covered with brick plaster and a wide border of cocciopesto with a lovely design of meander made with white tesserae.  
The atrium floor was of cocciopesto. See Notizie degli Scavi, 1908, (p.184)

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room B, atrium.  Looking east to area that used to have a dividing wall (destroyed) and was originally two rooms I and J.  According to NdS, the doorway from room H (visible on the left) led into room I which was a type of ala. Room I would have been on the north-east of the atrium. On the north wall of room I, a painted dado was preserved, painted in imitation of a coating of coloured marble. On the south side of room I, was the large room J, its north wall was destroyed. Room J opened in its entire width onto the east side of the atrium. The wall decoration of first style was very notable, preserved on the south and east. In the main part of the walls, one saw large slabs of protruding stucco, painted in imitation of coloured marble. In the frieze were the usual smaller rectangles. The dado offered a decoration imitating a perspective of small cubes arranged in horizontal rows, one above the other, each with a protruding edge. The floor was of simple soil.
