IX.14.c Pompeii. May 2010. Looking east across atrium (room 2), to doorway to room 6 in the north-east corner of the atrium. According to Spano in NdS,  straight ahead and to the left of the entrance were two rectangular decorations on white backgrounds of which nothing much remained, except a garland that formed the cornice above the one on the right. Spano surmised that perhaps the subject of these paintings may have been religious as garlands were found above the many lararium paintings in Pompeii. Found on the same wall was part of a layer of fine plaster, which had covered the previous decoration below it.

IX.14.c Pompeii. May 2010. Room 5, room to south of fauces 1. This room had a high level window and a recess for a bed in the south wall. The bed would have stretched along the west wall. Room 7 is on the right with room 8 at the far right end. Centre rear can be seen the gutter in garden 3. On the north side of the garden must have been a roof, as proved by a gutter in cocciopesto, shown on the plan with a dotted line. The garden was of rectangular shape, its walls whilst rough, were covered in white plaster. There was an earthenware circular puteal (c), near the area numbered 9. On the left of the west wall of the garden was a well-preserved masonry staircase, (d), which led to the upper floor.
