This was supported by eleven thick brick pillars which had replaced earlier columns.
The pillar in the middle of the east side is not shown on the Eschebach plan.
Between the two pillars at the south end of the east side of the portico there was a fountain.
On three sides of the corner (left) pillar was a remarkable series of four paintings which pictured in detail the various processes in the fulling industry.

VI.8.20 Pompeii. Fountain in the fullery of L. Veranius Hypsaeus, drawing by Gell. Between the two pillars at the south end of the east side of the portico there was a fountain. This was unlike any other fountain found at Pompeii so far. It consisted of a marble basin supported by a small fluted pedestal which stood in a pool of unusual shape. Water jetted from pipes (concealed in the projection –a low wall attached to each pillar) falling into the basin. It then overflowed into the pool. On the left pillar was a painting of a river god, on the opposite pillar a painting of standing female figure. There was also a painting of Bacchus and of Apollo on the low walls flanking the pillars. There was also a painting of an altar with two large serpents on one of the pillars. On three sides of the corner (left) pillar was a remarkable series of four paintings which pictured in detail the various processes in the fulling industry. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.
