Under the left arm was the bow and quiver. See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: Giannini. (no.574)
On the right, the graffito read:

QVOT MVLVIIRO
RVM DIFVTVISTI.
According to Varone, this translated as – You young rascal! Just how many women have you laid?
See Varone, A., 2002. Erotica Pompeiana: Love Inscriptions on the Walls of Pompeii, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider. (p.68, CIL IV 5213)
On the left the graffito read:
FILIVQUOD TV
According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) these read as -
Filius salax
quia to[t] mulier{or}um dif(f)utuisti 
 
Filiu(s) quo<t=D> tu       [CIL IV, 5213 = AE 2008, 00320]
