Villa of P Fannius Synistor at Boscoreale. Cubiculum M, second panel from south end of west wall. According to Barnabei, this wall painting depicts a golden statue of Diana Hecate bearing torches. She was the goddess who scattered her benefits on the end of life on those who protected it. She welcomed them, in peace underground, among the ranks of the blessed in the happiness of Elysium. In the painting she has a gold crown with serpents’ heads and necks on the top. Her chest was crossed by a white band to which was attached the quiver, visible behind the right shoulder. She is within a sacred portal wrapped in yellow ribbons. From the portal hangs a bearded mask of an old silenus above which a lintel is supported on the wings of two swans. On top of the lintel are two silver urns and between them is a round gold shield. At the base is a small red walled area with an altar with offering on top and two vases on benches. Either side are red columns painted with flowers and climbers. See Barnabei F., 1901. La villa pompeiana di P. Fannio Sinistore. Roma: Accademia dei Lincei. p.74, Fig. 17.

Villa of P Fannius Synistor at Boscoreale. Cubiculum M, second panel from north end of west wall. Panel painted with buildings, an ornate door, an altar and a statue on a column. At the top of the panel is a mask and on the left a red column ornately painted with flowers and climbers. The painting also has a considerable amount of detail not visible in the photo. The square column on the right marks the division between the end of the cubiculum and the start of the alcove.

Both however were within the same architectural structure, the Corinthian order, as in the other rooms. See Barnabei F., 1901. La villa pompeiana di P. Fannio Sinistore. Roma: Accademia dei Lincei. p. 71-81.
