VII.4.22 Pompeii. March 2009. Entrance, looking towards east wall of shop-room.
According to Fiorelli, at the rear of this shop-room was the doorway to the atrium with a beautiful marble impluvium, puteal, and marble pedestal on which perhaps would have been a figure in relief throwing water into the basin below. To the left of the atrium, and behind shop no. 21, was a cubiculum, opposite the tablinum, the stairs to the upper floor, and nearby to this the triclinium, followed by the kitchen at the rear.

VII.4.22 Pompeii. December 2007. Site of a fresco of Venus and Mercury, described by Fiorelli and now lost. 
Fiorelli describes it as being in VII.4.23, and says “Sul pilastro che divide questa dalla susseguente taberna......”. 
This translates as “On the pilaster that divides this from the following shop….” This would mean VII.4.23 and VII.4.24. 
However, the pilaster above fits the description of the painting, the shape of the remaining plaster and including the painted white line across it.

VII.4.22 Pompeii. Drawing of fresco of Venus and Mercury.

See Real Museo Borbonico, I, Plate 32.

According to Boyce, this was to be found on the pilaster separating the entrances to the shops at VII.4.23/24.

He describes Venus as being adorned with crown, necklace and bracelets and wearing a red garment bordered in white, and sandals.

In the background between the two figures was a high column, and against a small pilaster at its base leans an ithyphallic figure.
