VIII.2.34 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking east into and across atrium ‘c’, from VIII.2.30.
The east wall can be seen through the doorway, with red zoccolo which had painted plants in panels separated from a central panel.
The middle zone of the wall would have been white.
The threshold was of travertine with housing for the hinges of the door with two shutters opening towards the Interior of the room, like those of all the other rooms around the atrium.
The walls were decorated with a red zoccolo partitioned into simple geometric panels.
In the middle of the walls, the red central panel was separated from the yellow side panels by a narrow white panel.
The upper zone of the walls were completely faded, but conserved a trace of a stucco cornice.
On the east wall, visible through the doorway, the large hole made by previous excavators or perhaps by burrowers after the eruption, can be seen.
