VIII.3.12 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north from entrance across yard, through window to triclinium of VIII.3.11. On the north wall of the triclinium (seen through the window), in the red painted zoccolo was a panel with a painted plant. The middle area of the wall was painted white.
According to Breton, found in this room was a painting showing Urania pointing at the celestial globe with a baton.  Even in 1870, Breton said it had nearly faded and disappeared.  The other paintings in the house had entirely disappeared. The house was named from a painting of the Three Graces, which was also lost.
