IX.1.26 Pompeii. December 2005. Entrance. According to Fiorelli, the atrium was found at the end of the entrance corridor, but without an impluvium. At the side was a cubiculum, followed by a triclinium decorated with various paintings of fish, birds and landscapes. 
Opposite was another cubiculum which was next to a small garden area from where the next room took its light, containing the stairs to the upper rooms and adjacent to the kitchen, the lararium preserved only the figures of the two serpents approaching the prepared altar.
Found in the atrium was the graffiti - STRONIVS
                                                                     STRONNIVS
