HGW04d Pompeii. 1789 painting by J W H Tischbein. In the background can be seen a representation of the bovine skulls that gave the tomb its name. See Kockel V., 1983. Die Grabbauten vor dem Herkulaner Tor in Pompeji. Mainz: von Zabern. (taf. 13b). There seems to be some artistic licence with this representation. The side door of HGW04a is on the east side and cannot be seen, as shown, from the schola which is on the north side. HGW04d and the masks of HGW04c are shown to the north of HGW04a rather than the south. The wording on the schola is in small letters rather than the large letters on HGW04.

HGW04d Pompeii.  1809-11. Drawing by Mazois. According to Mazois “The drawing offers the sight of the tomb of Mamia on the side of the sepulcretum; one can notice on the right, in the wall which separates this place from the street, several heads of animals encrusted, 
and which seem intentionally put to form a manner of decoration rather suitable at a place devoted to the burials. In the surroundings were several vault openings. It was impossible for me to find them” See Mazois, F., 1812. Les Ruines de Pompei: Premiere Partie. Paris: Didot Freres. (p. 28, Pl. X).
