IX.3.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 12, south wall of tablinum.  According to Dyer:
“The tablinum was raised by one step above the floor of the atrium. Its floor consists of a white marble mosaic, surrounded with narrow black borders. In the middle is a slab of giallo antico, encircled with a border of variegated mosaic.  The walls are richly decorated with pieces of architecture, and in the middle of them are spaces for two large pictures, which must have been removed before the eruption. The wooden frames in which the pictures were contained have left their impressions on the stucco, as well as the marks of two horizontal supports at the back of them. These marks, which are about two inches deep, have led some writers to suppose that the pictures were painted on wood. Whether, however, there were any such at Pompeii is a moot point; and Overbeck contends that the supports at the back might have served either for a thin stucco tablet or to bind together the pieces of a wooden one. The ceiling of the tablinum was also of stucco, with coloured panels and gilt rosettes in the centre of them, as appears from numerous fragments which were discovered.”
