VII.9.40 Pompeii. December 2005. Three doorways on north side of atrium. On the left the doorway to the triclinium with a window onto the garden at the rear. In the centre, a corridor leading north to doorway to garden area, stairs to upper floor, and a cubiculum with window overlooking the garden. On the right, the tablinum. The stairs to the upper floor would have been behind the tablinum. According to Jashemski, this narrow shop-house, which reached through the entire insula, had a large shop fronting onto Via degli Augustali, a little wool-scouring plant (VII.9.41) and separate entrance doorway on the Vicolo del Balcone Pensile leading to the home of the owner, in the middle.
The garden was at the rear of the living quarters. It had a garden painting on the south wall which was visible from the Via degli Augustali through a very wide opening in the rear room of the shop. Little remains of the garden today. There was also a fountain, mentioned by Fiorelli and Niccolini, but there are scant remains of it today. A door from the living quarters led into the garden, and both the triclinium and a cubiculum had a large window opening into the garden. The large opening in the rear room of the shop also showed that the garden was intended to be enjoyed by those in the shop at VII.9.27.
See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.189)
Jashemski also noted that the garden painting on the south wall of the garden was not mentioned in any of the reports. In 1961, when she cleaned the brambles from this garden, on the wall between the door and the window of the cubiculum, she found the painting of a low garden fence with painted plants still visible above it. Behind the fence was painted a fountain supported on three slender legs. There were also faint traces of what appeared to be a similar fountain beyond the painted fence on the opposite side of the door, and perhaps another on the other side of the cubiculum window.
