IX.9.11 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking west across atrium towards garden area, from entrance doorway. According to NdS, this small house or perhaps a hotel, was formed by a displuviate entrance hallway, four bedrooms, a dining room and a garden adjacent to it.
The atrium was entered down from the roadway by two small steps, now destroyed. It had a beaten floor with the walls covered in rough white plaster and a high zoccolo (dado) of crushed brick on the walls. In the north-east corner of the atrium was the latrine. Buried in the atrium wall, to the right of the doorway to the garden, at the height of a man, was a niche with a pointed arch, covered in white plaster and painted with the usual foliage and red flowers.
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1891, p.261.

IX.9.11 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 2, south wall of cubiculum. According to Boyce, this room housed an unusual sacellum. The south wall was coated with poor white stucco, and in it were set three arched niches. A larger niche was in the centre, with a smaller one on either side. All were coated with white stucco. In the street wall was yet another niche, formed by bricking up a former window. Thus the room was left without any windows. The recess in the south-east corner must date from when the room was a simple cubiculum. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.92, no.462)
