VII.12.3 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking south towards peristyle garden.
According to Jashemski, at the rear of the large atrium was a peristyle garden, excavated in 1863. This was enclosed by a portico on the north and east supported by two columns. It was bordered by a low wall which had an entrance to the garden on the north.  At the west end of the garden was a shallow marble pool which had a fountain.  The triclinium off the north portico had a wide opening which gave a good view of the garden and fountain, as did the exedra on the east.

VII.12.3 Pompeii.May 2006. Rooms on west side of atrium. According to Eschebach , on the right side of the atrium were steps to the upper floor, these are on the right of the photo above. On the left of the photo, there was a windowed triclinium with a wide opening onto the north portico of the garden. Also on the right was a lararium.  See Eschebach, L., 1993.

According to Boyce, on the west side of the atrium Fiorelli reported a larario; but now there only remains a ruined brick base. This may have supported an aedicula.  See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.70, no.312)
