According to NdS, the room on the right would have been a narrow storeroom. The room in the upper left-rear side was a “mystery” room (stanza mistica) with a projecting window into the courtyard. In the courtyard was the doorway to the “mystery” room, on its external wall was seen the remains of a painting of a large serpent. In its north-west corner, and bricked into the pilaster, was a terracotta tub or basin ?
