VII.13.4 Pompeii. May 2010.  North-west corner of peristyle with painted plaster, and rear triclinium room of VII.13.21. According to Boyce, on the west wall of the peristyle was a rectangular niche which originally appeared to have been fitted with an aedicula façade but now gone. The interior walls were coated with white stucco and had delicate decorations in relief, including a cornice which ran around the top of the three walls.
