VII.7.5 Pompeii. C.1930. Looking west across flooring of portico, and threshold of exedra (u)/tablinum.   
According to Blake –
The pattern on this flooring was described erroneously, as The Turreted Wall, and used in the threshold of the tablinum (?) of VII.7.5, occurring only once to my knowledge, in a pavement which is probably to be assigned to the first century AD. (p.106)

VII.7.5 Pompeii. c.1930. Exedra (u)/tablinum, looking north across flooring.  
According to Blake –
Almost next door to the Apollo temple, in VII.7.5, the tablinum, if such it be, has a similar sectile centre enclosed in simple bands of mosaic. A band of yellow tesserae serves to connect with it, in date, the threshold which employs identical tesserae for its pattern, a textile design suggesting to the Romans a turreted wall.  The background, except for a strip along the back wall, where some large piece of furniture possibly protected the floor from wear, consists of coarser tesserae and probably dates from a later period. (p.38)
In a previous chapter we have mentioned the “turreted border” which formed the threshold of the tablinum of VII.7.5, containing an early sectile centre. Apparently this should be identified as a “textile pattern.” (p.73)
See Blake, M., (1930). The pavements of the Roman Buildings of the Republic and Early Empire. Rome, MAAR, 8, (p. 38 & p.73, & Pl.6, tav.2)
