VII.12.14 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking south to rear room, and area with staircase.
According to Fiorelli, this house was more noble than the preceeding ones and the last shop in the vicolo. Its triclinium, adorned with a little painting depicting bearded Pan in the act of raising the mantle of a sleeping Bacchante, was lit by a window which overlooked the roadway, and looked into another nearby triclinium. It had a passageway with stairs to the upper floor, and an area at the rear which was discovered with a large latrine in its corner.
See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.111) According to BdI, found in a room here was a copy of a painting, often repeated, showing bearded Pan lifting the dress of a sleeping Bacchante.
The dress was a reddish colour. The painting, which had suffered much, had the height and width of 0.37m. See BdI, 1864, (p.116, described as Casa VI.)
