According to Jashemski (and Boyce) there was a garden painting on the north wall, and in front of it was a masonry altar with a step on the front of it.
Boyce said the wall was painted with trees, plants and birds. The altar was coated with white stucco, and decorated with the following painted objects.
On the front side, a shallow dish with fruits and a pine cone. On the left side, two trees with an altar between them, with the attributes of Diana around it, a crown, a bow, a quiver, two hunting spears, two dogs and a torch. On the right side, a rural shrine scene consisting of a column and capital, and on the top of the capital a basket containing two rhyta, a jar, a phallus-like object covered with a red cloth; across the field was painted a thyrsus.
