VI.12.5 Pompeii. December 2006. Looking south across impluvium and atrium to entrance. According to Garcia y Garcia, the second of the two bombs to hit the House of the Faun fell on this secondary atrium.
The bomb caused the felling of three of the four columns, the only one remaining was that in the north-east corner. Also destroyed were two rooms in the north-west of the same atrium. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.83-84)
