Presumably this is the south wall, the same as he drew 14 years previously, however the central painting is not the correct one.
The correct central painting should be Achilles on Scyros, perhaps this had been cut and sent to the Museum (inv.no. 9110).
The painting in the central panel shows Endymion, also now in Naples Museum (inv. no. 9240) (Helbig 960) which would have been seen in room 14.
