VIII.2.26 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north across atrium ‘d’ to entrance doorway.
When excavated, the large impluvium was already missing its coating, probably of marble. 
In the centre it would have had a fountain fed by a pipe that entered below the floor in the north-east corner, where the large hole remains unrestored. On the right can be seen the remains of the black floor mosaic with inset large stones of white tesserae and a border of two white lines.
