According to Garcia y Garcia, two bombs fell on this house in 1943. 
One caused the destruction of three rooms to the north-east of the Tuscanic atrium, then causing damage to other areas. The loss of 1st style painting on the north and east walls of the atrium, and on the dividing wall of two cubicula to the west of these. The mosaic floor was also damaged. In a cubiculum in the south-east of the atrium, there was a total loss of the 2nd style painting. In the other two cubicula on the east side, there was a total loss of the 1st and 4th style decoration.
The floor of the centre of the atrium also suffered damage. The other bomb fell on the secondary atrium, see VI.12.5. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.82-85, with photos)
