IX.2.18 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 3, triclinium or a cubiculum. North wall with remains of vaulted ceiling and stucco decoration. The zoccolo was colourless and faded. The middle zone of the walls were red, they were divided into panels, in each of which was a painting on a red background which was already fully faded at the time of discovery, whilst one could hardly distinguish the subject of the central one with Io and Argo. The upper zone of the walls were also red, the vaulted lunette was bordered by a moulded plaster cornice.
See Bragantini, de Vos, Badoni, 1986. Pitture e Pavimenti di Pompei, Parte 3. Rome: ICCD. (p.420).
According to Fiorelli, on the north wall was a painting of Io and Argo, Io sitting with her hand on her chest with Argo standing at her side.
See Fiorelli, G: Descrizione di Pompei, 1875, (p.385).
According to Trendelenburg, originally this room would have had three paintings on each of its side walls, and one painting on the wall that looked onto the entrance. Only the one painting was preserved, but so badly battered that the colours were completely lost and only the outlines of the figures remained visible. However with certainty, the subject of the painting was recognised as being Io and Argo.
See BdI, 1871, (p.195)
