VII.7.29 Pompeii. December 2007. Remains of a capital from VII.4.51 on right, in storage. According to Spano, this damaged capital of Nocera tufa stone was found lying abandoned in a room of VII.4.59 the House of the Black Wall. He suggested it may have been the capital from the right side of entrance VII.4.51 of the House of Ariadne. The capital stone was badly splintered and the details destroyed or damaged. However these few parts were sufficient to show the figures of this capital were similar to that of the other that is very much better conserved. These show similarities in the heads of a satyr and of a maenad in profile, the one near to the other. To the side of each group a small scroll and a line of leaves of vertical acanthuses below, both things characteristic of Pompeian figured capitals.
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p.280 and p.282, fig. 12.
