On the left of the entrance was the doorway to the stables, (our room 12) and on the right was a doorway to a cubiculum (our room 14).

IX.9.12 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 13, triclinium.  Looking west through window into room 16, the light yard of IX.9.e. According to NdS, this room was lit by two windows, there would have been another in the south wall overlooking the garden (on the left). This had another circular window  above it, which would originally have been rectangular. The flooring would have been of crushed brick (mattone pesto), and the walls were decorated with a black background with red bands. In the centre of the north wall (on the right) was a red panel containing a painting which had partly fallen, and the parts which remained had faded. In the south wall near the doorway to the garden area, (see IX.9.13) was a low masonry hearth, which showed the room originally had another use.

On the east wall a painting of a musical contest could be seen. To the left on a seat was a bearded man of noble appearance touching the heptacord (a seven string lyre) with his left hand, holding the plectrum in his right. He appeared to be listening to the sounds of his rival. To the right stood a young woman in the attitude of playing a seven string chelys (a shell shaped instrument).
In the central compartments of the other walls, the usual sanctuary with a sacred tree was painted.
On the south wall a column topped with a vase or urn to which were attached two thyrsus (a staff), a rostrum of a boat, and a tympanum (hand drum or tambourine) could be seen. At the base of the column was an idol of Fortuna (in purple monochrome) with a cornucopia on her left arm. The hand of the lower right arm was destroyed. In the middle was the sacred tree, and towards the right were two figures praying to the idol. Behind the column, on the left, was a torch leaning against its base.
