Fountain outside II.3.5. September 2005. Looking south-east towards fountain with replacement pilaster.
According to Parslow, the fountain pilaster or “lava standard” was described by Weber as being decorated with a mask wreathed with clusters of grapes.
The original was removed and transported to the royal villa at Portici.

About 1810. Drawing by Mazois of fountain head of Bacchus or a God of the countryside and crossroads. See Mazois, F., 1824. Les Ruines de Pompei: Second Partie. Paris: Firmin Didot. (p. 37, Pl. III Fig. II). According to Eschebach, during the earliest excavations in 1755, near the Street of the Graves, a representation of the god Vertumnus or Bacchus was found, in the form of a fountain profile, which fits the character of this residential area. 
This fountain in the form of a pilaster was discovered in VI. Ins. Occ. Via Consolare, see Mazois. Eschebach commented “this permits no conclusions on the shape of the well basin”.
See Eschebach, H., 1983. Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae; Bollettino dell’ Associazione Internazionale Amici di Pompei 1. (pp. 15, 25, 26: Fig 33). This may, or may not, be the fountain from this site, see also the possible fountain we have placed at VI.17.27, which could also be a dubious location.
