VIII.2.14 Pompeii. December 2004.  Looking across atrium towards rooms at rear, from entrance corridor. According to Jashemski, at the rear was a large peristyle garden, linked to VIII.2.16 by a room, opening on both ends to a different peristyle. This garden was laid out on a volcanic ledge, and was enclosed on four sides by a portico supported by fourteen columns. There was a rectangular pool in the south-east corner of the peristyle, which had amphorae in it. These would have served as a shady retreat for fish. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.
