I.8.15 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking north across bar-room, with counter.  
According to Sampaolo (in PPM) -
“On the west wall, in 1936 a painting was discovered and removed. Painted above the zoccolo, was a painting in which the characters were identified by names painted in black, in capital italic letters. The scene divided into three panels of different lengths by wide red bands, showed six characters in short pink tunics (the first, third, and sixth from left) going to the right,  each carrying on their shoulder, two cages suspended by a stick.  They were walking among bushes under an unusual structure, probably a gabled pergola, hung with garlands. On the extreme right, there was a smaller female figure, dressed in a long green tunic, with her arm raised pointing to welcome the six characters that she was looking at. 
Starting from the left, and written near their heads, the names were –
Fortunatus, C. Iulius Trophimus, Felix, C. Marcius Fortunatus, G. Castricius Seno, D. I(uventi)us Eunus (Nautilo?)”.
See PPM, (p.846), where the painting was described as being found on the west wall.
