VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Entrance corridor, looking east to atrium.  The long fauces stretched eastward, to the detriment of the atrium. The moving and renewing of the impluvium also required the creation of a new emptying system, which meant breaking and relaying the previous atrium and fauces flooring. This resulted in the patches, seen above, in the fauces flooring.

VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking east across impluvium in atrium. According to Amoroso, the original impluvium was removed and a new smaller impluvium was inserted, during the last few years of the life of the insula. Some of the blocks of tufa of Nocera which had formed the collection tank of the impluvium, were transferred to the inside of a trench in the flooring and in filling a ditch. The new impluvium was reformed with reused material.

VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking east through doorway from atrium to peristyle. According to Jashemski, at the rear of the atrium was the peristyle garden, excavated in 1863. It was enclosed on the north, west and south by a portico supported by seven columns. The columns were red at the bottom, white and fluted above. There was a pillar flanked by two half-columns at the north-west corner. There was a gutter around the edges of the garden.

VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Doorway to room in south-west corner of peristyle, looking towards west wall and south-west corner.  The floor with the diamond design of netting on lavapesto in this room was obliterated by the laying of rough cocciopesto, further indication of the change of use of the entire house gravitating around the peristyle.

According to Bragantini et al, red painted plaster could be seen in the middle of the north and east walls. On the south wall, there was a red plinth but the zoccolo was without colour.
In the middle zone was a central aedicula painted with a blue background, the side panels were red. In the upper red zone of the wall, architectural paintings were seen. On the west wall, there was a red plinth and the zoccolo was again colourless, here the central panel was white with red side panels. The upper zone was red.

According to Eschebach, in these two small rooms on south side of peristyle, one had steps to upper floor, the other was a small storeroom.

VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Podium and tub for heating a vat, against south wall of peristyle.    According to Amoroso, the installation of the workshop (“officina lanifricaria”) determined the transformation of the peristyle, whose south side was filled with counters and by basins set in masonry.  The ample portico space was transformed from a walkway to represent a working courtyard, and probably given a gallery, which was accessed by a ramp located in an alcove described by Fiorelli.

VII.10.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking east in rooms leading towards rear entrance doorway at VII.10.13.  According to Amoroso, at the rear of the house, kettles and tubs were installed in a masonry bench. This would seem to indicate that the use of the area was changed perhaps into an “officina lanifricaria”.
