IX.5.6 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 17, niche on east wall in garden area.  According to Boyce, Mau measured this arched niche as h.0.31, w.0.39, d.019. In 1937 Boyce said the niche measured h.0.70, w.0.60, d.0.20. He felt that such a discrepancy could not be explained by the falling away of the coating of plaster which had left the bricks quite bare. In front of the niche stood a small masonry altar.
He gave the references – Not.Scavi, 1878, 262; Bull.Inst., 1879, 94; Overbeck-Mau, 290.

IX.5.6 Pompeii. December 2007.  Room 17, masonry basin with water pipe, to south of room 13 on west wall of garden area. According to both Richardson and Jashemski, near this basin four marble heads were found, including an Epicurus and two other philosophers. See Richardson, L., 1988. Pompeii: an Architectural History. Baltimore: John Hopkins University Press.  Jashemski said that three were heads of men, one of a woman. All were of the same marble and excellent workmanship. Mau thought they were to be attached to a wall, Dwyer suggested that they may have been cut to place back-to-back as double herms. Although, under examination he found that no two heads fitted together. The marble heads are now in the Naples Archaeological Museum, inventory numbers 111389, 111390, 111391 and 111392. 
See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.236) According to Pompeii, the richest series of little busts of philosophers was found here, Demosthenes, one alleged to portray Seneca, Epicurus and a woman, perhaps Leontion, the philosopher’s student and companion. See Panetta, M.R. (ed): Pompeii, the history, life and art of the buried city. Italy, White Star Publishers: (p.269)
