According to Boyce, in a cubiculum located on the north side of the tablinum, in the south wall is a semicircular, vaulted niche. The inside walls of the niche were coated with yellow stucco like the walls of the room, its floor was a marble slab. Fiorelli called it “una nicchia per qualche simulacro di deità”.

According to Schulz in BdI, at the beginning of October 1839, in the garden, an aedicula was found, which one ascended by four steps. At the foot of the aedicula were found two marble herms and a marble candelabrum. And in the left corner of the same courtyard was another niche, of elegant architecture, made from masonry. In various parts of this Courtyard were found many fragments of marble and bronze pots, including a marble head of Jupiter.
