According to PPM –
this shows a still life hanging from a pillar adorned with two medallions, depicting a peacock and a basket covered with a striped cloth.

(Note: the description in PPM says the north wall of the cubiculum (5), whereas in fact they mean cubiculum (6), the room on the west side of the caupona/bar-room, according to their plan.)
