VI.14.29 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking west through entrance doorway.
According to Wallace-Hadrill, originally this would have been a room from VI.14.30 on the south side of the fauces.
It had Style III decoration.

VI.14.29 Pompeii. May 2006. North wall.
According to Della Corte, the room with the stairs at VI.14.29 which had originally been a cubiculum of the House of the Laocoonte, was decorated with Style III paintings.
These have only been preserved in part on the north wall.
In the centre of the north wall was found the picture of a man and a woman on a bed, in front of which is a table with drinks: a servant stands nearby.
The painting is now in the Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 111209.
Sogliano described it (Sog.641 on p. 131). (Bull.Inst 1876, p.51-2, and Giorn.Scav.Pomp, n.s. III, p.147).
Another painting, Sogliano S.649, described a female figure lying on a bed.
According to Sogliano this was found in the room to the left of the entrance of VI.14.28 (Bull.Inst 1876, p.51), but no decoration has survived.
Della Corte thought it may have been from the corresponding room on the upper floor, as did Mau (B.I., 1876, p.49).
This painting may have been in the cella meretricia, whose location was unknown.
