IX.7.12 Pompeii. Plan showing layout of rooms, now buried.

Key:

1:  Long entrance corridor

2:  Fauces

3:  Atrium

4:  Cubiculum

5:  Triclinium

 

According to Eschebach, the long corridor [1], with side rooms of shops 11 and 13, led into the fauces [2].

This led to the atrium [3] with a cubiculum [4], on the left, and an unknown room, on the right.

Behind the atrium was a triclinium [5] where wall paintings were found.

According to Schefold, on the left wall of the triclinium [5], was a painting of Diana and Actaeon (Sogliano 115).

On the rear wall was a painting of Polyphemus and Galatea (Sogliano 688).

On the right wall was a fragment of a mythological landscape, possibly Narcissus and Echo.
