VIII.3.24 Pompeii. Drawing by Giuseppe Abbate, 1840, of painting seen “In the triclinium”. 
The painting showed two cupids carrying an arrow, one of the attributes of Apollo, who is also seen in the central painting of the north wall. 
Although a precise location of the painting is not known, it could be from the left (west side) of the north wall where there is a gap at the centre of the panel.

VIII.3.24 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking east across peristyle towards tablinum.
The floor of the tablinum was of simple cocciopesto. The wall decoration was of IVth style with a high black zoccolo with panels showing geometric patterns or plants and compartments with a central corolla. The middle zone was red, fallen for the most part on the north wall, but repeating the same colouring on the other walls. The middle zone of the east wall had a central compartment between two red panels. At the top was a square window opening onto the garden of the neighbouring house at VIII.3.14.

VIII.3.24 Pompeii. Drawing by Giuseppe Abbate, 1840, of paintings described as being from a cubiculum, but in fact, from the oecus of a house with entrance from the Via della Regina, at the rear of the Forum, Casa d’Apolline e Coronide.
The painting of Venus was seen on the east wall (Helbig 348) of the oecus, but now has completely disappeared.
The painting of Narcissus is still just about preserved and recognisable on the north wall of the oecus (Helbig 1341).
