VGJ Pompeii.  May 2006.  Inner side of east wall of tomb.  Garden painting with low lattice fence.  A bowl fountain with a square brim stands in front of the fence and is supported by a tall slender pedestal.  The surrounding shrubs, now barely visible, were identified by Spano (NSc (1910) p. 402 and Fig 11) as Oleanders.  There were faint traces of birds.  The painting is framed by two barely visible herms.  See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (103, p. 369)
