VIII.3.4 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 2, east wall of cubiculum, with painted plaster.
This room might have contained the wall painting of Dionysus & Silenus, 
See Helbig, W., 1868. Wandgemälde der vom Vesuv verschütteten Städte Campaniens. Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, (395b).
According to Fiorelli,
“.... e nel secondo (cubicoli) oltre alcuni bustini rinchiusi da circoli, un quadretto esprimente Bacco poggiato alle spalle di Sileno; che suona la lira, in atto di versare con l’altro mano il cantaro sulla pantera che gli sta ai piedi.”
(trans: and in the second (cubiculum on the left of the atrium) other than some heads enclosed by circles, a painting showing Bacchus leaning on the shoulder of Silenus; who plays the lyre, in the attitude of pouring with the other hand the cantharus onto the panther who is at his feet.)
See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.123)
According to PPM, the painting of Dionysus & Silenus was found in the atrium, but today, has faded and disappeared from the walls.
It has been wrongly identified with a painting in Helbig (H,395b) in which Silenus was described as seen playing a tambourine.
Whereas Schultz affirms that in the painting Silenus was playing the lyre.
