VII.16.1 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north-west from Temple of Venus towards entrance doorway, on right. On the left behind the wall would have been the area of the portico and peristyle. According to Garcia y Garcia, this house was badly hit by the bombing on 13th September 1943. The bombing totally demolished the atrium, five annexed rooms on the north and east sides, and the portico near the baths.  The impluvium has now totally vanished. In many ways, the restoration of 1950 has changed and distorted the original plan of the house. The stairs on the north-west side of the atrium and the portico have vanished. The baths of the house are now accessible only from no.12. Near the baths was a portico of fourteen columns. The portico does not exist anymore, erased by the bombardment.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.130-1)
According to Jashemski, the peristyle garden was reached by a short flight of steps, at the left west rear of the atrium. It was enclosed by a portico on the south, east and north, supported by columns.
